I actually sent this message yesterday but it never appeared to have
delivered to the list, so I'm sending it again now.
I've got an IPv6 tunnel set up via the HEAnet SixXS PoP, which allows
me to browse IPv6 sites. I also have a subnet allocated from SixXS
which I use to share the IPv6 connection among a few lab PC's here -
this all works fine when I manually configure my SuSE 9.2 server that
is doing the routing with the following script:
# author: Stephen Hanafin
# description: Script to bring up SixXS tunnel interface ('sixxs') and
set default routes.
# note: radvd must be running for local machines to autoconfigure
themselves with the
# correct inet6 addresses.

ip tunnel add sixxs mode sit local 126.96.36.199 remote 188.8.131.52
ip link set sixxs up
ip link set mtu 1280 dev sixxs
ip tunnel change sixxs ttl 64
ip -6 addr add 2001:770:100:66::2/64 dev sixxs
ip -6 ro add default via 2001:770:100:66::1 dev sixxs
ip -6 ro add 2001:770:13a::/64 dev eth1
Like I said, this all works fine when I manually run the sixxs script
after the system has booted, but I cannot figure out how to get this
to run at boot time. Can somebody enlighten me?
Also, I have one other small issue - radvd (IPv6 router advertisement
daemon) will not run at boot because the net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding
sysctl is set to 0, even though I have it set to 1 in /etc/sysctl.conf
If I change it to 1 at the command line and then start the radvd
service it works fine.
Thanks for your help
