Solaris 10 What's New

IPv6 for IPFilter

This networking feature is new in the Solaris 10 6/06 release.

IPFilter for the Solaris OS has been updated to include IPv6 support. Packet filtering rules which include IPv6 addresses can be applied by using the ipf commands. IPv6 extension headers can be used to enable filtering. The IPv6 option has also been added to the ipfstat IPFilter statistics.

IPFilter can now be deployed in IPv6 networks to enhance security.

For further information see the ipf(1M) and ipfstat(1M) man pages. See also the System Administration Guide: IP Services.
