And yet, IPv6 is so easy. It's a lot easier to configure than IPv4. ISPs may
have to update some equipment, but in the mean time, alternatives such as tunnel
brokers and 6in4 tunnelling exist to get things going. It's even easier for
servers. If IPv6 is not available at the server location, just connect to a
tunnel broker and get an IPv6 address for that computer.


I'd like to go ahead and setup my 4 DNS servers for IPV6 just to learn. You got a good howto for adding the quad-A records and any gotchas to look out for in a mixed IPV4-IPV6 setup?

From an ignorant standpoint it seems as simple as just adding the quad-A records for fix-IP boxes and then setting up the dhcpd/dynDNS to hand out IPV6 as well as IPv4 to dynamic clients. Not to mention that providing IPV6 reverse lookups will cure a current Samba log error issue with some win clients as well (if you have disabled all IPV6 in sysconfig/network and ifup scripts)

A favorite link or two?
