Unhappy Assigning large numbers of IPv6 addresses

I have Red Hat Linux 5.01 and am attempting to assign a very large number of IPv6 addresses to an Ethernet interface enabled for both IPv4 and IPv6. I find I can only assign at total of 4078 but need to assign on the order of 100,000 addresses to test a device external to the Linux server. I don't have a problem assigning this many IPv4 addresses. There is probably some kind of setting I can alter to increase the limit but have not been able to find any info on how to do it.


ipv4, ipv6, routing
