I keep meaning to mention this for all the IPv6 geeks out there. I have
used sixxs via its AYIYA service but had never used teredo before.
Certainly an interesting transition protocol for use behind a NAT, and
an interesting using of the address space to encode information. Details
here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teredo_tunneling

Setting it up in Fedora (19) was dead simple. Install miredo-client and
run it, though I would recommend switching your teredo server to
something like Microsoft's (they are listed in the
/etc/miredo/miredo.conf config file) instead of the experimental one.

I haven't spent that much time using it but access to IPv6 only sites
works. However, for me at least, dual stacked sites tend to prefer IPv4
over IPv6 and I haven't figured out why.

Anyway you can get miredo here if you don't have packages in your

Perhaps someone with better access to things like real uplinks (GCI, MTA
etc.) could set up a relay in Alaska? Most likely we end up getting
routed through Hurrican Electrics relays.
