How to set up IPv6 Static IP

By WeeMan411 ·
I've recently moved away to uni, and using their network as I'm in halls. Currently I can only do things like searching the net or MSN. Now I can open ports so I can do other things, but even after opening the right ports still can't do anything else. It's not a firewall issue as I've tried disabling it and still nothing. I don't currently have a static IP address and for some reason they are using IPv6 protocol which I have no idea how to set up. Any help would be much appriciated.

Uni would have to give you that address

you can't just pick one. Are you sure it needs to be static? if so, check with the uni network admins.

As for having IPv6 installed, exactly which operating system do you use, at what revision/version/service pack?

Your best bet is to contact the network admins - you'll get this resolved faster.

You must have an IP address, or you would have no connectivity. What "other things" do you want to do? They may potentially be disallowed on the network.
