I can't find instructions on how to turn on the IPv6 support to
ipfilter. I have been looking at Makefiles, man pages, NetBSD HOWTOs,
but no help. It should be a little bit easier... I tried to edit
the src/dist/ipf/Makefile and src/usr.sbin/ipf/Makefile but it
seems to make no difference. I also tried to make it default to
"block all", but it won't change from "pass all" either. It seems
that "ipf -6" command works, and the rules are loaded, but it doesn't
work even when the only rules are "block in quick all" and "block
out quick all". I can still ping the machine...
Add IPv6 into kernel, add /etc/ipf6.conf whatever rules you like and
see that it does not make any difference.
