User information and conditions

Who can participate in the pilot?

  • Any residential, small and medium business or corporate customer of Magyar Telekom, who have (A)DSL- or optical services may participate in the public testing for the introduction of IPv6, provided that they have the necessary infrastructure.
  • Those who have a fixed IP address, but Magyar Telekom do not provide a fixed IPv6 address to their device initiating IPv6-os PPPoE connection during the test.

Registration process

  • Please check, whether the hardware and/or software components required for the pilot are available  in your home or office.
  • Register and provide us with the necessary details.
  • Please, make the necessary settings on your computer operating system.
  • Set up your network device as well, according to the instructions below, in order to be ready for using  IPv6 addresses.
  • Using your existing ADSL or optical access user ID, logging on with the new settings and an IPv6 address will be allocated to you.

Home network devices capable of transparent transmission of IPv6 traffic

Devices owned by Magyar Telekom:

  • Pirelli DRG A225G digital Home Gateway – IPv6 capable after manual modification of the settings and firmware-version check
  • Thomson SpeedTouch 780 digital Home Gateway – IPv6 capable after firmware-version check

Check your user instructions for exact settings.

Devices own by the customer:

If you are using the T-Home internet-service with your own/home router and this device sets up the traditional (PPPoE) internet connection, then a router configuration modification may be necessary:

You have to check  whether the so called „PPPoE Pass Through” (or PPPoE Relay) function is supported, to ensure that it is possible to setup the IPv6 contained PPPoE connection through this router.

Should you be uncertain whether your network device can perform this function, check your user instructions or contact your network device vendor.

The pilot service can be used for example with the following devices – earlier distributed by Magyar Telekom:

  • Netgear DG834
  • Linksys WRT54G

Operation systems supporting IPv6:

For network devices

If the traditional internet connection (PPPoE) is initiated by a home networking device (e.g. Magyar Telekom owned digital home gateway or privately owned DSL router), the operating system running on the computer that initiates the IPv6 PPPoE connection can be

  • Microsoft Windows Vista,
  • Microsoft Windows 7,
  • illetve valamilyen Unix/Linux disztribúció lehet.

See the user instructions for exact settings.

Without a networking device (home router)

If the traditional internet connection (PPPoE) is initiated from the customer’s computer, then two PPPoE connections should be initiated from using the same computer. The operating system running on the computer that initiates the IPv4 and IPv6 PPPoE call can only be any Unix/Linux.

Setting up a home IPv6 network (optional):

If with a home network, based on the above instructions, you were successfully connected to the IPv6 network , using a host computer and wish to provide IPv6 connection to further devices within your local area network, then the host computer initiating the IPv6 connection should be configured as an IPv6 Gateway and DHCPv6 PD client.

See the user instructions for exact settings.

If you successfully made the required settings on your host computer connected to the networking device, and it acts as an IPv6 Gateway and DHCPv6 PD client, then further computers, connected to your networking device can access the IPv6 network. In case of further computers the connection is automatically established with default settings if you use Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7, while Microsoft Windows XP requires additional configuration.

PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) is a networking protocol which provides, with the help of a modem, individual, authenticated access to high speed data networks for users of local networks.

By using the DHCPv6 PD (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 – Prefix Delegation) protocol, the device used as an IPv6 Gateway gets from the service network the allocatable (delegatable) IPv6 prefixes for the home network.
