Okay, I think I'm ready to give it a try. I've read your articles, the only
thing I'm not positive about is the ipv6 address to use on tl0 on my router. My
netstart.local is:

ifconfig tl0 inet6 2001:c0a8:4501:0001:0008:c7ff:fea4:a940 prefixlen 64 up

The MAC address of the card is 00:08:c7:a4:a9:40, and the IPv4 address is - Is it OK to make the IPv6 address from the IPv4 if you're not
doing 6to4, or should I be doing something differently?
