IPv6 - Advanced Configuration

Post by amills157 » 2020/08/14 10:07:53

Hi all,

I have been looking through various documents for the CentOS IPv6 configuration and a lot of them seem to stop at enabling IPv6, with a few branching out into thing like manually adding or deleting addresses etc.

However if I want to start making configuration changes that are bit more involved, such as changing Flow Labels or how the Neighbour Discovery behaves (I'm thinking inline with best security practices and RFCs) there isn't much help in regards to how to actually configure things.

For example I have found loads of what seem to be relevant files and folders in the

Code: Select all

/proc/sys/net/ipv6
folder, but I'm unsure how they all relate or correlate to some requirements. For example, how would I configure the behaviour of the neighbour cache so that some advertisements are silently discarded?

Any help or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for the response... It does look like a lot of items in the HowTo are still waiting to be filled in themselves, with statements like
To be filled
in quite a few sections.
