The 6bone is analogous to the MBONE
. It is a collection of machines doing IPv6 tunnel

. As top-level router
s start routing IPv6 packets, the plan is that these machines will eventually start doing plain IPv6.
The 6bone is mainly experimental at the moment. See http://www.6bone.net/ for assorted information, including how to join.
