Default How to enable IPv6 in PC-BSD
Quote:
By now, you've probably heard of the next generation Internet Protocol, IPv6. While it provides many improvements and new capabilities, the driving force behind its adoption is likely to be the much larger (and more flexible) address space that it defines. Continuing growth in the population of IP enabled devices has already put severe stress on address allocation and the routing infrastructure. The roll out of new enabling technologies, such as 3G wireless and broadband to the home, will predictably create a new wave of demand. Now the scope of this article is just going to cover how to setup IPv6 on various BSD platforms. This is going to be a very basic how-to on getting it setup and properly working.

I look forward to IPv6 in widespread use but I don't want to think about writting in IPv6 addresses.

IPv6 will probably call for intelligent DHCP servers, but the human mind will probably find a way to enter static IPs even in hex. Humans pawn!

I guess it's time for me to start learning hexadecimal, and getting my brain to work in base 16 like it does base 10.
