The iptunnel command creates configured tunnels for sending and
receiving IPv6 or IPv4 packets that are encapsulated as the
payload of an IPv4 datagram.
The iptunnel command can perform one of the following operations:
create - create a tunnel interface, which you must subsequently
change - change an existing tunnel interface.
delete - delete a tunnel interface. You must disable the tunnel
before you can delete it.
show - show the tunnel attributes (name, tunnel end points, next
hop for tunneled packets).
