Default IPV6 capability no go

Recently I began renting a FreeBSD 7.0-Release server from ovh.co.uk who happen to support IPV6 and give each dedi they sell a dedicated bunch of IPV6 addresses.
I'm totally new to IPV6 so had to look up how to set-up network to make use of these but I'm having problems pinging anywhere from the server and visa-versa. I'm only setting this up out of interest really but please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

My address allocation is 2001:41D0:1:B9b1::/64

Here's a snippet of my /etc/rc.conf
# IPV6
ipv6_ifconfig_re0="2001:41D0:1:B9b1::1 prefixlen 64"
ipv6_ifconfig_re0_alias0="2001:41D0:1:B9b1::10 prefixlen 64"
ipv6_ifconfig_re0_alias1="2001:41D0:1:B9b1::11 prefixlen 64"
ipv6_ifconfig_re0_alias2="2001:41D0:1:B9b1::12 prefixlen 64"
And relevant sysctl values I'm using;
root# sysctl net.inet6
net.inet6.ip6.forwarding: 0
net.inet6.ip6.redirect: 1
net.inet6.ip6.hlim: 64

ifconfig snippet:
        ether 00:1c:c0:51:18:3f
        inet6 2001:41d0:1:b9b1::1 prefixlen 64
        inet6 2001:41d0:1:b9b1::10 prefixlen 64
        inet6 2001:41d0:1:b9b1::11 prefixlen 64
        inet6 2001:41d0:1:b9b1::12 prefixlen 64
        inet6 2001:41d0:1:b9b1::1337 prefixlen 64
        inet6 fe80::21c:c0ff:fe51:183f%re0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1

I used this link to help me get set up. It can be easily translated, I used google translate;

Thanks in advance
