I'm using the IPv6 tunnel on my residential fiber connection. I've noticed however that sometimes I'll get a new DHCP lease with a new IPv4 address, and the tunnel configuration will not update to reflect that (leaving IPv6 just broken).

I know HE's Tunnel Broker has an HTTPS API you can hit from any sort of DDNS tool to update the tunnel endpoint address. Is anything like this available for Sonic's tunnels, or is there some other way to update the address?

Honestly no clue about the automatic update part but maybe it would be easier to just get a static IP address assigned and not worry about it.

If your router supports 6rd, you might want to try that instead of the tunnel, a disadvantage being loss of static v6 addresses. This thread probably has the details needed to set it up. viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1877
