IPv6 support strongly needed

Asked by Andreas Troschka on 2008-09-20

More and more users are attracted in testing IPv6 as tunnel brokers and ISPs are offering more and more IPv6 access services.
The problem is most, if not all, Linux distributions do set no IPv6 fw rules leaving any access from this door!
When a user installs e.g. a IPv6toIPv4 tunnel (it is rally easy) the risks he gets visited is really high.

As IPv6 is no more "future" but it practically exists since now a good idea would be to start introducing, as a first step, some sort of very basic setup opportunity through Gufw to enable users accessing IPv6 to, at least, close the unwanted inbound activities.

This is known.

We have to remove IPv6 because ufw was not supporting it via their official
interface, and going the other way was against ubuntu policy.

So, we'll have to wait until ufw gets ipv6 support.
