Question IPv6


I'm using a Slackware virtual private server and have an IPv6 block for it. How do you set that up for Slackware? I.e., I'd like to use the addresses for different domains. I know I'd have to make AAAA records, but apparently for anything more than one IPv6 address, I have to configure the rest, maybe in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and /etc.rc.inet1. All I've found on the Internet about this is an old post here for Slackware 13.1, that doesn't have the example rc.inet1 anymore.

I gave up blocking ip6. Now I run ip6tables and block everything. It's the same as iptables.try it. I didn't think you could block through a config file.effectively.

14.1 or current?

I assume that you've looked at http://tldp.org/HOWTO/html_single/Linux+IPv6-HOWTO/ already.

You're going to have to do the configuration in /etc/rc.d/rc.local, since the commands run in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 assume IPV4.

I personally run it from rc.firewall, since that'll be run if you have it (and it's chmodded +x) right after your ipv4 network comes up

That TLDP document hadn't come up in my searches, but I've been looking now.

I don't have a firewall and don't plan to add one.

I'd like to see a way to do this as described in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...13-1-a-842553/ .

Well, that requires a re-write of /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 to do so. Maybe Skaperen is still active and has a copy squirreled away of what he did.

You misunderstand me. The rc.firewall script is just a script that (if executable) will be run after rc.inet1 gets your network up and running. You do not need to actually do firewall-y stuff in there. But if you need to run some commands to also get ipv6 the way you like it, it seems like the ideal place.

Of course, I understood suppy... still don't plan to call it rc.firewall.

Has the situation changed for 14.2?

After a really, really, really quick glance at the contents of /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1, I think the answer is "no".

‘IPv6 block’ means group of IPv6 addresses.

I've PM'd Skaperen inviting him to participate in this thread. I hope he does, because this is of keen interest to me as well.

The broken link in that other LQ thread might refer to these, which I pulled from https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...re/1YWBSaPOzks --

http://ciar.org/ttk/public/rc.ipv6.txt

http://ciar.org/ttk/public/rc.ipv6.inet1-edit.txt

The first file would go in /etc/rc.d/rc.ipv6 while the second file's contents would be added to /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 somewhere.

I doubt it. That thread was talking about editing rc.inet1, which with modification, can already use IPv6. Those Usenet alt.os.linux.slackware thread replies were talking about writing an entire new script that seems must duplicate some of rc.inet1's functionality... seems like overdoing it.
