tech-net is perhaps not the right forum, but I thought I might as well
Have anyone considered that the switch to ipv6 needs changes to wtmp and
In wtmp, the hostname is just 16 bytes, and formatted in a printable way
means that you cannot see where people are coming from at all with ipv6
Another thing is when you have a router that don't respond to router
solicitation messages. There should be some way of manually setting the
default route for ipv6 hosts.
