Users will always be able to view the example configurations provided in the tunnelbroker.net interface, however we also wanted to make them available on the forums. I'll cover the ipv6 & netsh commands used on the different Windows versions. I won't be using valid IPv4/IPv6 information in the examples, but the example configurations in the broker's interface will provide the full commands with your relevant account information.

Legend of variables:
$ipv4a = tunnel server's IPv4 IP
$ipv4b = user's IPv4 IP
$ipv6a = tunnel server's side of point-to-point /64 allocation
$ipv6b = user's side of point-to-point /64 allocation

Windows 2000/XP:
ipv6 install
ipv6 rtu ::/0 2/::$ipv4a pub
ipv6 adu 2/$ipv6b

Windows 2008/Vista/7
netsh interface ipv6 add v6v4tunnel interface=IP6Tunnel $ipv4b $ipv4a
netsh interface ipv6 add address IP6Tunnel $ipv6b
netsh interface ipv6 add route ::/0 IP6Tunnel $ipv6a
