Is there any other advantage to IPv6 other than virtually unlimited addresses?  Not that I am trivializing that fact.

Alright then here goes.



A commented/stripped version of my rc.conf.

# Setup interfaces on server/router like normal
ifconfig_fxp0="inet netmask"

# Enable IPv6 on the system, must also be compiled into the kernel

# Allow the system to act as an IPv6 router

# This should be the v6 address at the other end of your tunnel

# Hurricane Electric uses gif tunnels so set one up here

# Set source and destination v4 addresses for the tunnel

# Set source and destination v6 addresses for the tunnel
ipv6_ifconfig_gif0="2001:470:1F01:FFFF::1AE1 2001:470:1F01:FFFF::1AE0 
prefixlen 128"

# This is the /64 allocated to me by hurricane electric
# Set the XXXX::1 address on the internal network interface
# as the gateway
ipv6_ifconfig_fxp0="2001:470:1F01:3540::1 prefixlen 64"

# Allow the system to send IPv6 router advertisement packets
rtadvd_enable="YES"              # Set to YES to enable an IPv6 router

# Specify that we only act as a v6 router on the internal subnet
rtadvd_interfaces="fxp0"       # Interfaces rtadvd sends RA packets.
