Requirements for joining the 6Bone

I did some playing with this and set up my dial-up linux box as an IPv6
router, got it to obtain an IPv6 address and network from an HTML form (BTs)
and then used radvd to inform a couple of IPv6 clients.

It needed a custom perl script to go to the form and then setup local config
but it worked after a fashion :)

I wrote 25 pages of notes that went through from kernel config, Bind 9
setup, radvd, and wrote a noddy client/server. It's not a HOWTO but it
documents my ramblings somewhat :)

If anyone wants I'll send or post them up.

> Hi,
> I am interested in IPv6 and, having read the "How to join the 6bone" 
> document (http://www.6bone.net/6bone_hookup.html), I now have a 
> question.
> The document talks about building a configured IPv4 tunnel to the 
> 6bone point of entry. This leads me to believe that to connect to the 
> 6bone one must first be in possession of a static IPv4 address.
> Is a static IPv4 address a requirement of joining the 6bone?
> Is is possible for a dialup user with a dynamic ISP-assigned IPv4 
> address to join the 6bone?
> Thanks in advance,
