I have been running IPv6 on my internet servers for over 2 years now, so i thought it was time i take to running it at home as well. I run a couple of Linksys WRT34GL routers with TomatoUSB firmware so getting up and running was trivial.
I used the Shibby Mini IPv6 VPN custom build of Tomato.
The following links should get you up and running in no time.
- Get your home connected with IPv6
- TomatoUSB Setting up IPv6 for HE Tunnelbroker
- IPv6 Reverse DNS Zone Builder for BIND 8/9
These custom builds have an issue with failing to update the tunnel address (as of 2012-04-20) the dynamic dns update fails with "Unknown error" this is caused by the wrong ping address being configured in the firewall.
I was able to fix it by using a custom script in firewall section to allow the HE broker to ping the tomato router.
iptables -I INPUT -s 188.8.131.52 -p icmp --icmp-type echo-request -j ACCEPT
Run your own tunnel broker
For the adventurous, you can run your own tunnel broker if you have access to servers with IPv6 assignments
