Pardon me for interfering with your lucrative business here,
but anyone contemplating running a Teredo relay and 6to4 relay
should first understand the capacity issues before buying a
little embedded box to stick in their network.

The ARIN IPv6 wiki has this page
which not only gives you a number of options for setting up 6to4 and 
Teredo relays, it also points you to documents which describe
what these things do so that you can understand how to size them
and how to manage them. And the ARIN wiki tries to be vendor
agnostic as well.
