It'll not be completely usable until at least 2.6.20 Cool! That's good to know. Now I can stop digging through kernel and iptables sources. :-) I trust then that the default IPv6 firewall logic/rules for FC6 will be modified to avoid this behavior until such time as it becomes fully functional? Right now it's seriously broken OOB (out of the box) and leaves the entire IPv6 networking non-functional. > Dave Thanks! Regards, Mike -- Michael H.
