Hi again!

So, after several months, I've decided to take another crack at upgrading
to IPv6.  I followed the directions on the shorewall IPv6 support page as
far as I can tell, and also dug well into the Linux documentation noted in
that article. Thanks for all your efforts in putting that page together,

I'm attempting a simple two-interface firewall setup. I've gotten as far as
being able to connect to the firewall from the insides, resolve DNS, but
all IPv6 traffic leaving the outside interface seems to fail with "Network
unreachable" messages, trying both ping6 and traceroute6 and verifying no
REJECT/DROP errors in the logs.  I can confirm that IPv6 is working on the
ISP by hooking up a Windows box to the cable modem (only problem there is
the ISP doesn't have an IPv6 DNS server, but otherwise all is well).

But, try as I have tweaking the network/interfaces and shorewall/shorewall6
configurations and even attempting to add routes directly to the tables, I
can't seem to get any traffic to move.  I have a DHCP-issued IPv6 address
from the ISP, but running 'ip -6 route' shows no default routes.  I do have
default routes on IPv4, and disabling IPv6 on my clients does result in
successful IPv4 connections and data transmission.  But, IPv6 remains
unreachable for some mysterious reason.

Attempted to get some support from the ISP, but they are just following
script as usual.

I've attached the shorewall6 dump to this message. Let me know if any other
info is needed.

Thanks for any help you can provide!
