I belive this is a good time to reopen "Support IPv6 - ID: 799444" request as IANA exhausted it's IPv4 pool couple of weeks ago and apparently APNIC will be the first RIR to exhaust it's pool at the end of April 2k11. IMHO a couple of ISPs are already providing production worthy IPv6 stacks to their customers and bunch of my servers (dns, ntp, http, https, smtp, pop3, imap) are already dualstacked. Using l7 firewalls is the next sane thing to do.

  • Here's IPv6-enabled l7-filter patches that I used few years ago (I also send theim to developer mailing list). I have not keep theim up to date with latest kernel versions since I don't use l7-filter anymore:
