IPv4 is configurable,
IPv6 is not.

So, IPv6 support is very limited even with hardware that says it has IPv6

Perhaps it's expecting an address via RADVD or DHCP6

I don't mean that.

Yes, the printer can get an automatic IP, but then I would not know where it is. Nevertheless, its configuration panel for IPv6 is not complete, compared to IPv4. On 4 I can adjust the name, IP, mask, gateway... For 6, nothing.

I'm not sure why you'd need that. I use regular DNS and it works fine. I use a
DNS with an IPv6
address, but any DNS should be able to provide both IPv4 A records and IPv6
AAAA records.

No, I don't what that is for, either. Maybe autconf related.

It's for providing IP addresses for host names to other systems, without using
a dedictated DNS. A
computer will do a multicast other computers on a network, asking who has the
IP address for a host
name, in a manner similar to how an arp request obtains the MAC address for a
given IP address. I
have never used MDNS, as I've used either a DNS server or hosts file.

Ok... that I can understand.

But see, from the log:

SFW2-INext-DROP-DEFLT <-- incoming packet, on my computer.
IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=
SRC=fc00:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:7fff <-- “FROM” my computer.
DST=ff02:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:00fb <-- “TO” multicast.

How come, the packet is traveling backwards? Ah, maybe the router sends it to everybody, it is a multicast, so I get it back.


Look, if you send a "SIGUSR1" to the avahi-daemon PID, it dumps to syslog its
table :-)
