Re: [opensuse] IPv6 - do you use SLAAC or DHCP ?
-----Original Message-----


For outgoing, at least for a mailserver, it does matter a lot which
address is being used. Using the random address would mean the
receiving server would have no way of identifying the sending server.

If using dhclient6 actually means not getting a random address assigned,
that's probably what I need to do.

I surely hope that you use something else then your ip for identifying... -)
So you probably mean "the (sub-)net allowing connections"

V6 offers some privacy by using random numbers instead of fixed mac-addresses.
One of the nicest things about v6 is, that you can add a lot of multiple
addresses to you NIC.
So while still using a randomized address for surfing, you can still add
additional
fixed addresses for other purposes.

afaicr, the idea was: "outgoing=random, incoming=fixed" for both servers and
desktops
