My VPS host can allocate me a small block of IPv6 addresses for nothing, and I've kind of wanted to for the sake of trying on my small website/dev VPS.
My main concern is what I have to do to actually utilize them, in a secure fashion or at all.
Will most of the services (i.e. SSH, Apache) simply not read the IPv6 incoming addresses, or do they require a recompilation or module?
Will my firewall (iptables or whatnot currently) be able to block ports for both types of addresses and work fine with them out of the box?
My kernel is fairly new, 220.127.116.11 I believe on Debian (AMD64)
Thank you for any insight or suggestions you could give me on this, I've got my DNS provider as HE.NET which should be able to provide IPv6 records (I really just want to do ipv6.mysite.com for fun) if that is what I need on that end.
