I found this procedure for starting to use IPv6 on a home network. It is specific to Debian and the SixXS tunnel broker. Many thanks to Martin Krafft for this very nice description that starts with the firewall rules and moves on from there.

I want to get an IPv6 address from SixXS.net. The first step is to apply for an account. They gave me one. I tried to use the username/password credentials to log in, and was not able to read the page. I guess it must be xhtml, and it had some kind of error right after the head element. So all I got was a message in the browser saying that there was an error on line 14 character 8.

I tried logging in again today, and was able to see a page full of info.

I don’t know what the problem was. Could have been a problem on the remote end, or maybe I didn’t have cookies enabled. It works now, and I was able to apply for a tunnel. We’ll see what happens next!
