Hello all,

I've been toying with getting IPv6 installed and running for a while, and I've got only one hurdle remaining.

I have 5 servers on my quaint little network, and my primary firewall is configured with an IPv6 address, we'll say 1000:2000:1::6 and is connected to my ISP through a gif tunnel (router doesn't support IPv6 yet, on my end) to 1000:2000:1::5. I can ping6 all day long across this tunnel, and I can even connect through this firewall to other sites using the IPv6 addresses.

I've been given 2001:4900:1:0111::/64 for my use. I've configured / etc/rc.conf on my first two machines with ipv6_enable="YES" and given them 2001:4980:1:0111::1 and 2001:4980:1:0111::2. Each machine can ping6 itself, but they cannot ping6 eachother. I know the copper is good, and my ipv6 is running along side my ipv4 addresses and such. In addition, there are no firewalls in between.

Is there something I'm missing?

Also, what the heck is rtadvd_enable="YES" actually doing for me? I understand it's broadcasting some routing stuff so my other hosts can auto-configure their IPv6 addresses, but anything else?

Thanks a lot all!
