Well, in observance of ipv6 I decided to finally try to set up a ipv6 tunnel
for some of my machines. It turned out to be way easier than I expected.
After creating an account with a tunnel provider (tunnelbroker.net), creating
a tunnel was just a couple extra clicks, and they provide cut-and-pastable
examples specifically for NetBSD of the ifconfig and route commands to run.
ifconfig gif0 create
ifconfig gif0 tunnel a.b.c.d w.x.y.z
ifconfig gif0 inet6 mmmm:nnnn::2 qqqq:wwww:1 prefixlen 128
route -n add -inet6 default qqqq:wwww:1
After chopping off the "ifconfig gif0" piece, and putting the rest of those
lines in /etc/ifconfig.gif0, plus adding a defaultroute6 line to rc.conf, I
now have working ipv6 access!
If anyone else has been putting off setting this up because it seemed like
it would be hard to do, I urge you to give it a shot.
Thanks to everyone that worked on NetBSD's ipv6 support!
(btw, this was on NetBSD 5.0)
