Maybe I am late to the party but I just noticed my pfSense box is getting
assigned an IPv6 WAN address via DHCP.
I can ping ipv6.l.google.com with it natively.


PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) <redacted ipv6 address> --> 2607:f8b0:4000:801::200e

16 bytes from 2607:f8b0:4000:801::200e, icmp_seq=0 hlim=57 time=28.695 ms

16 bytes from 2607:f8b0:4000:801::200e, icmp_seq=1 hlim=57 time=25.456 ms

16 bytes from 2607:f8b0:4000:801::200e, icmp_seq=2 hlim=57 time=26.253 ms


--- ipv6.l.google.com ping6 statistics ---

3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0.0% packet loss

round-trip min/avg/max/std-dev = 25.456/26.801/28.695/1.378 ms


I need to start learning all of the IPv6 wizardry very soon.
