I got a new Cisco T1 router with enough flash memory to run an IOS version that supports IPv6. I reconfigured my network a tad and now the Cisco does the freenet tunnel and passes traffic for the rest of the machines.

Apparently the neteng group at DLS is supposed to start working on IPv6 soon. Hopefully I can get native IPv6 routed here and rt.fm can support it as well.
