Very fast IPv6 setup on PLD/Linux Th

If you need IPv6 on some PLD Th machine, like in my case laptop, you can just do:

poldek -uGv miredo-client-teredo
service miredo-teredo start

and verify that IPv6 works by doing for example:

mtr -6

This solution doesn’t require any configuration (well, there are some options that can be altered). It should work even if you are behind some NATs and other weird gateways thanks to Teredo.

Working setup causes new interface to appear, for example:

20: teredo: mtu 1280 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN qlen 500
inet6 2001:x:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:e4b6/32 scope global
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
inet6 fe80::ffff:ffff:ffff/64 scope link
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Of course there are other solutions for non-native IPv6 like 6to4 (pure rc-scripts are enough), ISATAP (see miredo-client-isatap package) or just typical SIT tunnel.
