Re: Reason for disabling IVP6

While I've not played with it much, it shouldn't be too difficult to set up the router/gateway as v6 but everything behind it on v4. Only do V4 DHCP etc, firewall blocks any v6 on the wrong side of the fence.

At least till some potty thing comes along and breaks security yet again.
