Since the release of IPv4 in the early 90s, addressing with 32 bit based IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) will soon be exhausted so that it will result in limited IP addressing requests, this is in line with technological advances and human needs for technological devices that allow to do data communication. Therefore, IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) was introduced as a solution to increase IP addressing allocations. IPv6 has an address length of 128 bits, so the address available is 2128 (3.4 x 1038), far more than IPv4. Basically IPv6 is not compatible with IPv4 so that a certain transition mechanism is needed so that IPv6 can interconnect with IPv4. The mechanism of IPv4 transition to IPv6 consists of 3 types, namely Dual-Stack, Tunneling, and Translation. In this final project, the Tunneling transition will be used. The transition method that will be discussed in this final project is the GRE6 Tunneling and Tunneling 6to4. Both of these tunneling methods work very well on FTP and Video Streaming services. However, from the two methods it is not yet known which method is more optimal. Therefore, it was tested in the Politeknik Caltex Riau network with the parameters to be observed were transfer time and delay in FTP (File Transfer Protocol) services and packet loss in Video Streaming. Comparison is done by analyzing the performance of  Tunneling GRE6’s and 6to4’s QoS (Quality of Service) using the Wireshark.
