[opensuse] Why no IPv6 link local address?
My firewall is an old computer running openSUSE 11.3 and I have IPv6 running on it. However, the NIC facing my cable modem does not show an IPv6 link local address, which every NIC is supposed to have, if IPv6 is enabled. The NIC facing my LAN has both link local and public unicast addresses. I had considered that something in my cable modem might be inhibiting it, but when I plug my notebook computer directly into the modem, it has a link local address.

Any idea why that one NIC doesn't have a link local address?

tnx jk
