Hello all,

I am having a hard time with getting IPv6 on one of my servers. I've had no issues getting it on a number of others but this one is just not working.

It seems that I do not have the IPv6 tools (and I'm guessing the IPv6 stack it self). Specifically I am missing ping6 and traceroute6 and when I do a "mtr -6 2001:4860:b002::68" ( it doesn't even get the first hop.

I've tried to update the system using /usr/src/UPDATING section "To rebuild everything and install it on the current system.".

Here is part of the kernel that I used. I added the INET6 from the Generic kernel to see if that would help.

include GENERIC
ident TFTP2
device pf
device pflog
device pfsync
options ALTQ

# Needed for Zebra MD5
options IPSEC
device crypto
device cryptodev
options SCHED_ULE
# Added for IPv6
options INET6

Anyone have any other ideas on what I should try next?

I just did a "netstat -na" and found that I do not have any IPv6 running.
