newbie account activation
« on: September 17, 2009, 06:55:38 PM »

Can someone please advise.
Is there a manual for this program
I'm a first timer! After I login, how do I activate the program? There doesn't seem to be an indication that a tunnel has been activated for me.
How do I know when a tunnel is active?
Is the tunnel activation automatic when I sign
is there a mamual for this program

You need to read the instructions.  It creates a tunnel setup for you on their router.  Then you need to set up your tunnel router on your end.  There's no "program".

I don't even understand the relevance of having a poll where the selection are different questions. Removed poll, put your questions into your post.

In the meantime, go watch the video I made for how to turn up your tunnel, using linux workstation as the example:

Try surfing to IPv6 only hostnames like or something. Or ping and traceroute with IPv6.
