For the archives, the broker website appears to have reverted to an
earlier version stylistically but with slightly more options. I suspect
they've upgraded Hexos on the broker and the page we see now is the
stock page.

Also, the failure I was getting changed from 301 to Authorisation

I had to recreate my account, but once I did that I was able to get gw6c
to connect to the broker fine. I could also get myself a /56 tunnel by
changing the mode to router and the prefix length to 56, but if I
requested a /48 by prefix length in gw6c, the connection would fail to
come up.

I wonder if that was the problem the whole time... I used to have a /48,
so my client was set to use that as the prefix length, although the old
broker website stated that existing /48 tunnels would continue to

So, I once again have a dancing turtle at http://www.kame.net, which of
course was the goal of the process... ^_^

we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
