I've only used AARNet tunnels (http://broker.aarnet.net.au/), and assumed
they had run out of subnet allocations again when it repeatedly error'd, it
is indeed good news to hear that it works... I take it the autoconfigure
settings for the authentication client just do the right thing when the host
type is set to "router"?
Personally I followed the guide at
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/ipv6.xml(unfortunately without the actual
routing part) and found the
"net-misc/gateway6" package in portage works fine with AARNet...
