IPv6 integration

Registered by Jérémie Corbier on 2006-06-08

The 6bone has just been "shut down". More and more ISPs provide IPv6 connectivity to their customers. The ipv6 module is compiled in Ubuntu kernels and causes some issues such as DNS resolution timeouts. A lot of applications are IPv6 enabled but no real policy is defined. It is about time to think about a real IPv6 integration in Ubuntu.

Whiteboard

For machines behind NATs, Teredo can be used (miredo packages in repos, http://www.remlab.net/miredo/). Additionally, it is easy to accidentally expose services over ipv6 if one is not careful, a few default firewall rules could be helpful to prevent this. -- Andrew Fuchs
