You got the answer to that question, but it is more insightful to ask
questions back.

Hmm, I was more thinking of the people who actually did the code for
adding TSP and AICCU to the firmware, but heck, if you want to go
through the importer, enjoy ;)

I actually hope they answer your first question and then are smart
enough to ask that latter question as they might have some insight that
you might not have for the basis of your selection of protocol.

6in4 definitely is supported. As stated in the rest of my message they
are running on a Linux kernel and they also support the full set of
AICCU, thus static 6in4, heartbeated 6in4 and of course AYIYA which uses

As it Linux, after 2.6.33 and with the right iproute tool set you
already have support for it. Field-tested already also by all the people
with Linux kernels who tried 6rd, which is likely 90% of the people who
did something with 6rd.

Through your distributor, well yes, then it will take time unless you
are a rather extremely large customer ;)
