converting home network to IPv6; ppp, IPv6, dsnmasq and iptables
I have an ADSL connection for my home network. The ADSL modem is
connected to an old box running Debian Testing which acts as a router
My ISP has given me an IPv6 address to try out. I have the username and
password. Basically, I now need to convert my ppp connection to deal
with IPv6 addresses and perhaps make changes to my iptables firewall and
dnsmasq. The latter (dnsmasq) can wait, however.
I have been reading stuff online on how to go about doing this. Various
testing confirms that Debian is ready for IPv6. For the ppp connection,
I need to make a few changes in ppp config and install a DHCP client,
wide-dhcpv6-client, and I should be more or less good to go. Got the
details from this document:
Before I go about trying this, I just wanted to know somebody here has
accomplished this yet successfully and if there are any pitfalls to look
out for. I also want to make sure that my iptables firewall continues to
work, perhaps with some changes if necessary.
Any other precautions and advice in this endeavor are greatly appreciated.
