Has anyone successfully used the BOINC client to remotely administer a BOINC instance via IPv6?

I have a remote server with an IPv6 address that is successfully attached to the PrimeGrid project and is happily crunching workunits, but I can't get the BOINC client on my Win10 PC to successfully connect to its IPv6 address so that I can remotely monitor/control it.

Can you otherwise ping the remote IPv6 address from your win10 PC? Does it have an ipv6 address? I know a lot of ISPs don't give you an ipv6, so you can't make use of it (none of the ISPs in my town give ipv6 at all).

Ah, OK. You're right--I can't ping it because I don't have IPv6 routing through my ISP.

I guess I need to set up an IPv6 tunnel on my router to get this to work. Sounds like a weekend project!

Is that more secure than a VNC connection? I use VNC to connect my Windows machines within my home network but know it would work if I allowed it from outside the home too, it's also free for non business users.

An IPv6 tunnel doesn't bring any security to the connection, but just allows the routing of packets to IPv6 addresses.

I use Teamviewer within my home network, as Shadak suggested. But for this cloud instance I don't really need to monitor/control the OS itself, just BOINC.
