Using Netsh in windows dos XP-Vista and 7 to open a IPV4 to IPV6 Tunnel

netsh usage in Windows:

(sets up a IPV6 tunnel named "IP6Tunnel" with) (local and Remote remote ips for the tunnel ends respectivly as shown above)
netsh interface ipv6 add address IP6Tunnel 2031:470:1f0e:8ba::2

netsh interface ipv6 add route ::/0 IP6Tunnel 2031:470:1f0e:8ba::1
(adds a route from ::/0 local host for "IP6Tunnel") to the (router 2031:470:1f0e:8ba::1)
And to delete the above adaptor Setting if needed:
