No gateway created after adding GIF interface and configuring?
I was using this 'Configuring IPv6 Through A Tunnel Broker Service'guide to configure IPV6. But it doesn't seem to be creating any gateway for the IPv6 address. The address shows in the CLI. But after several reboots and a restore/recovery procedure it still won't add the gateway. Any ideas? The .14 address is pingable in both directions if that makes any difference.

gateway for the IPv6 address.

I haven't set up a tunnel with pfSense, though I used to use one with Linux. There are a couple of things to remember. First off, you generally don't have to set a gateway with IPv6. On a LAN, that would be provided with router advertisements. Also, with point to point links, such as a tunnel, you don't even need an address. All you need is the tunnel interface. This also applies with IPv4 point to point links.
What happens when you try to connect with that tunnel? What does netstat -r show?

Looks like there is a tunnel setup. not sure how to connect to the other side without using the software and in the cli. The goal here is Dual stacking ipv4/6.
