I have recently moved to a university where all computers get a public IPv4 address. Since the teredo tunnel I was using doesn't work anymore and I have a public address, I am wanting to use Hurricane Electric's tunnel broker service on my Fedora 15 Gnome machine.

I've already configured HE with my information and am just trying to get it working in Fedora. I'm using a modified configuration script from the Fedora Wiki (which didn't work without modifications).

My /etc/sysconfig/network config:

NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=quackpad-fedora
NTPSERVERARGS=iburst
NETWORKING_IPV6=yes
IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6_DEFAULTDEV=he-ipv6
IPV6_DEFAULTGW=2001:470:1f10:11d0::1/64   # Server IPv6 Address

And my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-he-ipv6

DEVICE=he-ipv6
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes                         
IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6TUNNELIPV4=209.51.181.2        # Server IPv4 address
IPV6TUNNELIPV4LOCAL=***.***.*.***  # My IPv4 address
IPV6ADDR=2001:470:1f10:11d0::2/64  # Client IPv6 address

If I do sudo ifup he-ipv6 I get (why does ifup-eth care about that?)

 ERROR    : [/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth] Device he-ipv6 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

If I do sudo service network restart

Sep  1 18:15:07 quackpad-fedora NetworkManager[938]: <warn> connection /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Settings/1 failed to activate: (2) Device not managed by NetworkManager or unavailable
Sep  1 18:15:07 quackpad-fedora NetworkManager[938]: <warn> connection /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Settings/2 failed to activate: (2) Device not managed by NetworkManager or unavailable
Sep  1 18:15:08 quackpad-fedora /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth: Device he-ipv6 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

Sep  1 18:15:08 quackpad-fedora systemd[1]: Unit network.service entered failed state.

What am I doing wrong here? Why do these keep failing?

Add to ifcfg-he-ipv6:

TYPE=sit

And I think in the network file these lines are not necessary:

NETWORKING_IPV6=
IPV6INIT=
IPV6_DEFAULTGW=
