I have an account at Hurricane Electric and want to use a IPv6 Tunnel Broker of them. There's a way to setup this tunnel on pfSense?
No IPv6 support in pfSense at the moment. It's all there under the hood (in FreeBSD), just nothing in the UI.
My understanding is that there is a perceived lack of interest among the developers; I've been floating the of a reasonable sized bounty among several people who would co-contribute in order to see if we can change that perception.

I think a great GUI that made it easy for anyone to transfer their network to IPv6 would be a fantastic way of getting pfSense into more places.
IPv6 is coming, so why not be the one that show the way instead of lurking behind? At the moment it is a bit difficult to transfer a small network to IPv6. Why not make this as simple as turning it on in pfSense, adding a tunnel there and then getting some step-by-step instruction in how to set it up in the most common OS'es.
For me it is a no-brainer: Just get it done! As soon as I have some money to throw at it, I would even contribute a little.
My wife will kill me for this, I'm sure…
It isn't much, but I'd like to throw $5 in on that bounty...
More, when we can afford it!!
From someone that has implemented IPv6 before I can tell you that the problem is not a simple one
The protocol is different enough to make it a pain to learn
Dual stacking can be hard to troubleshoot and implementation isn't exactly strightforward
There is a pretty big lack of support for it outside of Research, Education and [some] government in the US (Asia is another story).
That said, I have successfully made the HE tunnel stuff work under pfSense from the CLI.
