- Next, select “TCP / IP Settings”, then – “IPv6 Tuning Technologies”.

- In the line “Teredo update rate” select “Enable” – 10-30.
- In the tab server name, you can specify teredo.remlab.net / teredo-debian.remlab.net / teredo.trex.fi…
- We check the availability of servers with the team ping -n 60 teredo.remlab.net…
