What applications are you using for this job? They should fallback to
IPv4 automatically. The "no route to host" might be a red hering.
NetBSD's own ftp(1) will e.g. print that out when you connect from
an IPv4-only host to an dual stack host. But it *will* connect.

Firefox definitely falls back to IPv4 if IPv6 is not working.
