Hello, I am running a 6.1-RELEASE system, one IP (v4) address configured, everything is wonderful.
Now, in the past I have added additional IPv4 addresses with this command: ifconfig fxp0 alias 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.255 Easy. So now, I need to add a ipv6 address for the first time, and I am very nervous - the system is very far away from me and it costs a LOT to have someone go reboot it or attach a KVM, etc. so I am _very_ worried about issuing the wrong command and knocking it off the network. Now, I have a real ipv6 connection, and am not tunneling or anything like that, so I don't need to do anything with gif0, do I ? Can I just run this command: ifconfig fxp0 inet6 alias 1234:4567:1234::2 netmask ?? and then: route add -inet6 default 1234:4567:1234::1 and that will work, and NOT knock me off of my ipv4 ? Also, I put ?? in place of my netmask above - what is the ipv6 netmask for a /48 ? Finally, when my provider told me about my ipv6 allocation, they said: "We have created a ::/48 for you, ::1 is your gateway" "inet6number: 1234:5678:1234::/48" So am I correct that my ifconfig IP (see above) should be: 234:5678:1234::2 Or am I misunderstanding how to write that out ? Many thanks. ____________________________________________________________________________________ The fish are biting. Get more visitors on your site using Yahoo!
