    I know Tomato doesn't support IPv6 itself, but is there any way to get it to foward all IPv6 traffic to a different box? I have a hurricane electric tunnel set up on my server (, but I would like the other computers on my network to benefit from it too. I really like Tomato and I would like to keep it, but this is a feature that might make me switch if I can't figure out a workaround.

    Thanks for the insight!

    In your firewall script, add the following lines:

    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i vlan1 -p 41 -j DNAT --to
    iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -i vlan1 -p 41 -d -j ACCEPT
    This forwards all your tunneled IPv6 packets (proto 41) to your server at, which you can now set up as a router for the rest of your network.

    My next question might be the end to my attempts at an ipv6 network. Is there any way to configure a Mac OS 10.5.7 (client version) machine to act as an ipv6 server, while letting the tomato box route all other traffic?
