I noticed that some of my Centos boxes have IP6 enabled, and seem to have addresses. I have no problem with this, but I would like to get a handle on it, and even connect to them using IP6. This would really help if for any reason DHCP has a hiccup.
But I'm a bit lost as to where the configuration on my CentOS box is. (I am also on google researching this, but I like server fault! :) )
I am hoping that I would be able to log into this via the VPN because every now and then that DHCP device has a bad morning, and needs to be restarted. (I'm also looking into this issue, but someone else handles that, management separation gone mad!) It's a remote client, so it would be a lot easier for me to connect to these systems which seem to self configure, to use that as a pivot via ssh tunnels to get to other remote devices to continue to manage them, while out main route is fixed.
I guess, my questions are
- How can I configure IP6 without interfering with IP4, and
- On CentOS, can I influence this auto configuration I seem to be seeing?
