That's correct.

As always when doing configured tunnels, you need to pick a few from the 
6bone pTLA list and try traceroutes to them to see if they are reasonable 
for you. Have you read this section on the 6bone hookup page?

<http://www.6bone.net/6bone_hookup.html>

Also, you can come up using 6to4. See 
<http://www.6bone.net/6bone_6to4.html>. Also, you can talk to Ron Broersma:

He used 6to4 to get DREN up and qualified for its pTLA this way.

Very little is needed until it becomes production for you (presumably that 
will be a while from now). Some pTLAs spend more than others to be on the 
6bone, but I think it is proportional to their network size/scope and how 
production they want to make it.

That's covered in the requesting a pTLA page:

<http://www.6bone.net/6bone_pTLA_rqst.html>

Again, the pTLA request page, and read RFC2772:

<http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2772.txt>


If you have more questions, please ask me.
