I have 5 servers on my quaint little network, and my primary

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?
Maybe you used a /128 netmask, or a wrong routing table? Try sniffing
with tcpdump/wireshark to see what is going on.
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?
There is a section in the handbook about ipv6:
