Hi! You can find more about the status of Samba and IPv6 in my presentation from SambaXP (see http://www.ipv6consultancy.com/ipv6blog/?p=8).

I have also provide a patch that enables IPv6 in the Samba4 server. A Howto and the Samba4 IPv6 patch can be found at http://www.ipv6consultancy.com/ipv6blog/?p=12. There is no patch for Samba3 yet. However, Samba3 can be made to serve CIFS over IPv6 using a superdaemon or a port forwarder (see my presentation for details).

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck. It will be sometime before Samba3 and Samba4 have full support for IPv6. You might be interested to know that the Linux CIFS client has IPv6 support in the development tree. See my blog for a fix to this if you decide to try it out!
