Does the VPS provider not have native IPv6? They must be doing something else exceptionally good, if you want to use a provider without native IPv6.

If you really want to use a tunnel from this VPS, I suggest you choose one of the public IPv4 addresses to use for the tunnel and then use one of the configuration examples written for use with a single IPv4 address.

Once you got the tunnel working, I would suggest you configure your own 6to4 relay and Teredo relay on the VPS. That way you can get much reliable communication with clients using either of those tunnel protocols. That advice applies both if you have native IPv6 and if you are using a 6in4 tunnel. If you have a public IPv4 address, using your own relay will improve reliability.

What OS are you running on the VPS?

I suppose you can use HE for DNS without using HE for tunnelling.
