use ipv6 OpenWrt router with Debian

I set up ipv6 tunneling from my OpenWRT router. I can successfully ping6

Behind the router I have a couple of Debian boxes. How to I get ipv6 up and going on the Debian boxes? Most of what I find is tunneling from a Debian box over ipv4 to ipv6. My router is doing that ; so wouldn't that be superfluous?

What do I need to do to:
get a happy ipv6 lan up and running?
test where things are not working?

For what's it's worth I see the Debian box has two IPv6 addresses:
inet6 addr: -------------/64 Scope:Global
inet6 addr: -------------/64 Scope:Link

FWIW, I installed tspc
aptitude install tspc
and set it all up quite easily on my OpenWRT router as well as my Debian boxes. I can see the turtle dancing from everywhere.


debian, ipv6, openwrt
