Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface Missing

For those of you that don’t know, Teredo is a type of protocol that allows computers behind a NAT firewall without a native IPv6 connection to access remote IPv6 resources using only UDP protocol.

As such, the main purpose of Teredo is to let home users can start accessing IPv6 web services before their local connection supports the protocol. In the end, this translated into an easier transition from IPv4.

If you run Windows 10 but don’t know how to run IPv6, check out this detailed guide for more information on the matter.
