What firewalls work with IPv6?
SuSEfirewall2 is really just a wrapper around iptables - you should be
fine using plain iptables.

Other than address specific rules, does it require different rules for IPv6? Or does the fact that my IPv4 firewall only permits ssh and OpenVPN also apply to IPv6 traffic?

Are there any port scan sites, similar to, available for IPv6?
