## Our mission
We want to enable anyone, anyone with IPv6. It should be as simple as
"plug and play". We are very proud to announce that with the
**VPN IPv6 IoT Router Box** (VIIRB), we can now offer exactly this.
## How it works
The VIIRB is pre-configured with a Wireguard VPN. With this VPN you
will receive a /48 IPv6 prefix. The IPv6 connectivity is provided by
[Data Center Light](../projects/data-center-light/).
When you plug in the ethernet cable and power it on, it will do the
following:
* Establish a VPN connection via IPv4 or IPv6 to Data Center Light
* Announce a pre-configured /64 network on the LAN
* Announce a pre-configured /64 network on the Wifi
By default the firewall is configured to allow outgoing connections
from LAN/Wifi towards the VPN. Incoming ICMP6, SSH, HTTP and HTTPS is
open by default.
## Fully Open
The VIIRB is running stock [OpenWRT](https://openwrt.org/). We flash
the latest available version before shipping. SSH and http access to
the OpenWRT management is open. The password is randomly generated and
will be send to you with the shipping confirmation.
## VIIRB use cases
So what can you do with the VIIRB?
### IPv6 on the go
Going to a friend and the network does not have IPv6? Just bring your
VIIRB, plug it in and enjoy a fully enabled IPv6 network.
### IPv6 only Wifi
Once the VIIRB is started, it will present you with the wifi network
**IPv6 everywhere**. The pre-configured WPA2 password is
**iloveipv6**. As opposed to the root password, which is random,
we intentionally set a default here, so you can just drop the box and
people who see the SSID "IPv6 everywhere" and know about the project,
can connect right away.
If you don't like this, you can turn the wifi off or change the name
and password.
### IPv6 world wide reachable audio system
You can install the [music player daemon](https://www.musicpd.org/) on
the VIIRB and allow remote control of the music from anywhere in the
world. You can either put your music locally on an SDXC card or you
can even mount your music collection or stream music to it.
Just connect the VIIRB to your audio system, configure it and enjoy
remotely controlled music!
### A BGP router
With
[bird2](https://openwrt.org/packages/pkgdata/bird2)
and
[quagga](https://openwrt.org/packages/pkgdata/bird2) available no
OpenWRT, you can use it directly for peering with other ASNs.
In fact, if you let us know before ordering, we can even connect your
VIIRB to a VPN endpoint that allows peering with the real Internet.
### A hacking box
Thi VIIRB contains a variety of additional features like PWM, GPIO,
A/D converter, D/A converter and so on. It can also plug in a small
camera, so you can turn it into an IPv6 enabled camera. The VIIRB is
so universal, easy and hackable that it's just fun to use it.
Remote controlling your lights, your blinds, your door bell - all
remotely via IPv6? You can do it with the VIIRB!
