I said it works, I didn't say that it would perform, the same with 6to4,
it all depends on where the relay is (latency) and how crowded, how much
bandwidth it allows and never forget that there is also a path back...
and with the current state of the IPv6 routing tables towards such
addresses it might not be fast at all. But it all depends on conditions,
the moon, the sun alignment etc ;) But it *does* work, one gets
Afaik there are currently only a few number of (public) Teredo relays:
- The Microsoft 'default' one, which is thus in the US
(don't know if it is anycasted but afaik it isn't)
- teredo.ipv6.6wind.com (http://www-rp.lip6.fr/teredo/)
And I guess, the third implementation, (Miredo /
http://www.simphalempin.com/dev/miredo/) will have some
relay somewhere too...

That is also a solution, or just use one of the several tunnelbrokers
around the world. The biggest of which all support NAT's too ;)
