To start iodined at boot, put these lines to your rc.conf:
iodined_password="Passw0rd"         # tunnel password
iodined_domain=""      # tunnel domain
Note that the password is visible from process list. The default ip
on the tunnel interface is set to You can change it with
the ``iodined_addr'' variable in rc.conf.
You need to delegate the tunnel domain for iodined use. Add things
like these to the DNS zone file:
iodined	IN	A
t		IN	NS
Replace with your server's (the one you run iodined) IP.
To run the client,
iodine -f -u _iodined -t /var/empty
