I have yet to get freenet6 or a regular tunnel broker to work... I had
goten most of the kinks worked out of freenet but once the link is made
I cant get it to go any where...    tspc -vvv -i sixbone -u sixbone

I have installed the ifconfig stuff as well just for testing and still
does not work.  probably missing somthing stupid though.    hurricane
electric does not require special software it just needs to know your
ipv4 address so dynamic can be a pita if it changes alot
