Altibox native dual-stack IPv6 on EdgeRouter

Altibox native dual-stack IPv6 on EdgeRouter

I recently decided to give Altibox and their 6rd implementation another go — searching the interwebs I stumbled upon a Norwegian forum post that read (translation by me):

So I moved the SFP module and fiber from the CCR — to the EdgeRouter 4 👇

Since I’m already running hidden network cables in the same area, I figured why not hide this one as well 🙂

Invisible cables are the best kind of cables!
