Morning All:

Tried setting up firestarter and ran into a problem with location. Only gave me 
the option for IPv6 tunnel with a device code of Sit0 (or something very close 
to that). When I started the interface and logged on to the net it did pick up 
on ppp0 being present and active but it still would not start because it didn't 
see the tunnel as an active device.

Did a short google on the term and IPv6 tunnel seems to be something associated 
more with business and network setups. Is it something I need for a single home 
machine? If it isn't, what are my targets and hunting ground to disable and/or 
remove? If it is useful, what changes do I need to make to get it to a state 
that Firestarter will see it as an active device?
