Hi !

I have the following problem:

We use an Alphastation200 eith an additional DE450 running Digital Unix
where we installed the X6.1 IPv6 binary Kit. We use this station as a
router. We like to connect our site via SWITCH to the 6bone. After
spending quite a lot of time, we got the status as described in the

My questions are : Is it possible to add static routes ?
                   How do I have to do it ??

Thank's for your assistance!

automatic tunneling, so the :: will not work.

You should be able to set up a configured tunnel by adding static
routes for the tunnel endpoints with the addresses I gave you.  Please
consult your documentation or Digital's support for information about
