Using an HE tunnel on a Debian/Ubuntu Linux box

Setting up an HE tunnel on a Debian box is pretty straightforward.  Just set up the Tunnel like normal in your HE portal and put the following configs in your /etc/network/interfaces file

auto he-ipv6
iface he-ipv6 inet6 v4tunnel
        address $HE_IPV6_IP
        netmask 64
        endpoint $HE_ENDPOINT
        local $LOCAL_IP
        gateway $HE_IPV6_GATEWAY
        ttl 64
Next time you reboot your machine or restart the network you will have interface he-ipv6 for your tunnel interface.
