2011-03-27: Tunneling IPv6 over IPv4 using SixXS on Win7 x64

It's been a long time coming, and now the IPv4 address pool has been exhausted. Still it doesn't seem like world is scrambling to switch over to IPv6 (it doesn't even seem like they're preparing for it, even though they ought to be ready). My provider hasn't even given any information about their plans for implementing IPv6. This makes it difficult to see if my own network or any of the stuff I make will handle IPv6. Fortunately, there are services that allow you to experiment with IPv6 by tunneling it through IPv4. SixXS is one such service, but setting up a tunnels, especially on Windows 7 (64 bit) is a bit more involved than you might think from the documentation or the 10 step guide and there's a few things that are unclear or downright missing. Here's my step-by-step walkthrough.
