I did this by creating a 6to4 tunnel to a relay provided by provided by Hurricane Electric - a great service they
provide BTW.  They provide sample configuration templates for various
routers and OS's.  I created the 'tunnel' from a Cisco 871w router (don't
forget to configure a firewall here since you'll get IPv6 public IP's
assigned to you).  I used their block of v6 addresses they assigned to me,
along with IPv4 addresses I already had - ie dual-stack, on my various
windows and linux boxes behind my firewall.  I then used their IPv6 DNS
server, which returns IPV6 addressing if there's an AAAA record for the
website you are going to.  Some sites - like google search are reachable via
different DNS names, like or

You can also build / use Teredo tunnels - which I tested and worked as well
- tho not as good as from the routers.  This works well for hosts behind

Finally, you can test your personal IPv6 connectivity here:

And you can test if your site, or any site, is reachable via IPv6 here: if you do not have IPv6 configured.

Good luck,
