If you're providing content or network services on v6 and you

are more v6 users on those two than there are on native
v6[1]. Talk to me and I'll give you a pre-built FreeBSD image
that does it, boot off compact flash or hard drives. Soekris
(~$350USD, incl. power supply and CF card), or regular
server/whatever PC.

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.

Do you imagine that Soekris are giving Nathan kick-backs for mentioning the price of their boxes on NANOG? :-)

I'm sure for many small networks a Soekris box would do fine. For the record, FreeBSD also runs on more capable hardware.
