wanted to open ssh to my main computer? Ouch! :-(

Worse, some of them do not support ssh, only telnet. Yes, today,
current hardware.

And probably, hardware that does not support ipv6, either.

Crap hardware? Sure. But it is what I can buy.
I don't know of any other I can buy that is better in that respect.

I would need a really good entry firewall if I were to have ipv6 adsl.

Just a normal firewall, nothing special is needed.

The firewall in my router, although it runs Linux internally, is not that
"normal". I would need to
say to it "open ssh only to this list of IPV6 addresses", instead of using the
current port
forwarding configuration window. Similar, but it simply is not IPV6 aware.
