I had assumed this to be the case, which is exactly why I felt the need to
raise the issue. It is all very well having this test network, but lets try
and get some real services up and running to get some real traffic on the 
net. I've experienced similar accesses with USOT-ECS. Shall we create some
ipv6 newsgroups, and go from there, and lets get www.ipv6.6bone.net up or
similar ?

If you, or indeed anyone else wants to get together with me and set up some
newsgroups and peer them (not tunnels, but delivered across 6bone) then 
I'd be only too happy to do so.

I certainly see a lot of ICMP traffic =)
