Linux Orbit contributing author and FreeBSD user David LeCount shows you how to connect your FreeBSD system with the ‘6Bone’: “The next generation Internet that uses this protocol is called the 6Bone, and it’s accessible from the current Internet. Now you may ask, “What are the advantages of getting on this 6Bone?” Good question. Some people just want to get an early start on tomorrow’s technology. Some enjoy having a new toy to play with. Some may like the idea of owning a huge subnet of IP addresses for free. You may already have had your reasons before clicking on the link to this tutorial. Whatever the case, if you’re interested in trying out this new internet and you have a FreeBSD machine connected directly to the internet, keep reading.”
Connecting to IPv6 With FreeBSD

I wonder how long it will take for the IPv4 addresses to run out?
why does linuxorbit have a freebsd article??
John who did the submission also wrote:
“Our first FreeBSD HOWTO in our growing library.”
So, there are going to be more FreeBSD articles.
>why does linuxorbit have a freebsd article??
Why not? Just because LinuxOrbit has a “linux” word in its domain name? Well, I had Star Trek news on OSNews. And it was fun.
My name is John Gowin and I’m the editor in chief for Linux Orbit. *NIX systems are very similar and there is some demand for BSD help as well as Linux. We hope to be able to contribute content and help for many diifferent *NIX-style platforms.
True, the domain has Linux in the title, but that doesn’t mean we’re obligated to just talk Linux.
Hope you enjoyed the article too BTW.
like where do IPv6 gateways live?
