IPv6 Home Portal Showcase Site

Basing current trends today, it has been predicted that everyone will eventually have their own globally reachable content. A URL (Universal Resource Locator) is necessary in order to do this. With Globe's IPv6 Tunnel Broker service, it does not only provide users IPv6 internet connectivity but it also can provide a home URL. Users can host their own content/portal on their home computers and accessed though the provided home URL. This home portal will provide secure access to the private home network making home content and services easily accessible from anywhere on the IPv4 and IPv6 Internet.

Globe's IPv6 Tunnel Broker Service - Home Networking Feature provides plug 'n' play installation without any specific network requirements. There is no need to configure the NAT with port forwarding or any other configuration. Since port forwarding isn't used it is also possible to have any number of services in the home. IPv6 ensures that all the devices are uniquely addressable meaning there is no limit to the number of devices supported in the home network.
