Restart Ipv6 Tunnel

Problem Verizon Fios does not provide native dual-stack connectivity. To enable my connection for IPv6, I signed up for Hurricane Electric's Tunnelbroker service. To make a long story short, whenever the IPv4 IP on my Fios connection cycled to a new address, I had to manually update my new IPv4 IP in a few places (Tunnel Broker website, /etc/hostname.gif0) and run a few commands. Solution Wrap ifstated with ping and a small shell script to automatically restart my IPv6 tunnel on the new IPv4 IP.
