Description

The Get-Net6to4Configuration cmdlet retrieves the 6to4 configuration of a computer or a Group Policy Object (GPO).

6to4 is an address assignment and router-to-router automatic tunneling technology that is described in RFC 3056: Connection of IPv6 Domains via IPv4 Clouds. 6to4 provides a globally-routable IPv6 address to a host with a public IPv4 address. This IPv6 address can be used to connect to other 6to4 hosts or the IPv6 Internet.

Examples

Example 1: Get the 6to4 configuration

PS C:\>Get-Net6to4Configuration

This command retrieves the 6to4 configuration of a computer or a GPO.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-GPOSession

Specifies the Group Policy session from which to retrieve the configuration information.

You can use this parameter with the NetGPO cmdlets to aggregate multiple operations performed on a GPO.

You cannot use this parameter with the PolicyStore parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IPInterface

Specifies the interface for which to retrieve the 6to4 configuration. If the interface is not a 6to4 interface, then the cmdlet does not return any 6to4 configuration.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PolicyStore

Specifies the policy store from which to retrieve the configuration. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • ActiveStore

  • PersistentStore

  • GPO

To retrieve the configuration of a GPO, specify the GPO name using the following format: Domain\GPOName

You cannot use this parameter with the GPOSession parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

None

This cmdlet accepts no input objects.

Outputs
