Reading the papers on HFSC and its cousins is not a good way of understanding it. The primary goal of the HFSC paper is to provide a rigorous mathematical proof of its claims, not explaining how it works. Indeed you can't understand how it works from the HFSC paper alone, you have to read the papers it references as well. If you have some problem with the ...

You need to use the gateway address that should have been given to you by the VPS provider. Unfortunately, I know who your provider is, and they apparently do not tell the customer the gateway address as normal procedure, requiring a support ticket just to learn the gateway address. Try 2a00:f48:1024::1. If it doesn't work, open a ticket with the provider. ...

*Smacks Self in Head * The issue was a (very) silly mistake. I installed the 32bit version of pfSense, and not the 64bit version. Problem solved!
