IPv6 day fun is beginning!

I've done the same at home, HE tunnel for IPv6.  I've got a Linksys 
WRT54GL running DD-WRT so getting it set up was relatively straight 
forward though I really need to fix the automatic startup script that's 
Work was another matter, one big headache, to the point where I'm 
wondering if something is interfering.  OpenBSD box running pf acts as a 
router for us, HE tunnel comes up easily and works fine from box. rtadvd 
starts advertising the network range and every machine in the office 
picked it up.  Briefly those workstations running Windows 7 in the 
office were able to use the tunnel (5 mins give or take).  From then on 
I could see outbound and inbound IPv6 traffic on the BSD box, but it 
never seemed to reach the workstations.  Tearing down, reconfiguring, 
checking out every guide under the sun, nothing worked :)  Gave up in 
the end, I'll tackle it later when I've got time to waste.
Would be nice if my $isp would sort out an IPv6 address range for us to 
use properly.
