IPv6 and Shartak

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been trying to figure out IPv6. Having worked through some of the IPv6 certification at http://ipv6.he.net/ I now have an IPv6 enabled web server and mail server as well as IPv6 connectivity at home via tunnelbroker.net

I thought I’d update Shartak to allow access via IPv6 as well as IPv4 – mostly nothing needed to be changed, however…

ip6tables and CentOS 5.6

Having just recently obtained an IPv6 address for my server, I figured it would be a good idea to setup a firewall on the IPv6 address. Although most services are bound to the main IPv4 address only, it doesn’t hurt to be cautious.
