AARNet IPv6 Migration Broker experimental service

AARNet has acquired a Hexago migration broker (the same
device as used by Freenet6) and it is now available as an
experimental (best effort) service. This device can be used
to automatically create IPv6 over IPv4 tunnels to provide
IPv6 connectivity to devices that are otherwise isolated
from the IPv6 part of the Internet. The broker can also
assign networks and route them down the tunnel so that LANs
can be connected but it does not support any routing
protocol exchange. While it can also create reverse DNS
records for the tunnels it creates this functionality
hasn't been configured yet.

Also note it's IPv4 address will change when we roll out
AARNet3 in the next couple of months so be prepared to
change configuration files.

AARNet management are happy to make this service freely
available, for at least a trial period, to the whole of
the Australian Internet community in order to help promote
IPv6 use. People (and organisations) outside of Australia
are encouraged to use Freenet6 or another closer service.

In order to use the service you will need to obtain TSP
software for your platform from the Freenet6 site
and then register with the broker

The documentation on the broker is very sparse but you
can reference Freenet6 for more information about TSP.
