Thank you for responding Jacob.

I do allow ICMP echo request (ping) on my WAN IPv4 interface so that
*should* work.

I also notice you are not specifying the IPv6 address on the WAN interface.
I would expect that I have to specify that as well unless I am using
something like PPP (I'm not). I have set the near end (client) IPv6 address
into the IPv6 address field. M0n0wall is not allowing me to set the value
for the IPv6 gateway. I assume that is because that is implied by specifying
the IPv4 tunnel endpoint. (It makes sense to me that it doesn't matter what
the IPv6 address of the tunnel endpoint is because that is where the packets
are going regardless.)

Now the question is, how does one set up the LAN side of things? My tunnel
broker provides both /48 and /64 routed IPv6 prefixes. I assigned the first
address in my /64 routed IPv6 prefix to the LAN interface, i.e. prefix
is 2001:470:1f05:d49::/64
so IPv6 address of my LAN interface is 2001:470:1f05:d49::1.

Not sure what I should do with the IPv6 prefix delegation. Also the
"Suggested IPv6 Address" produces an error, i.e. "Error calculating IPv6
Address!" Clearly I am doing something wrong here. I suspect it may be due
to my confusion over using the Routed /48 prefix and the Routed /64 prefix.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
