Howto configure the Linux kernel / net / ipv6


IPv6 configuration
IPv6 as module will cause a CRASH if you try to unload it


  • Option: IPV6
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) The IPv6 protocol
    • default m
    • select CRYPTO if IPV6_PRIVACY
    • select CRYPTO_MD5 if IPV6_PRIVACY
      This is complemental support for the IP version 6. You will still be able to do traditional IPv4 networking as well.
      For general information about IPv6, see <http://playground.sun.com/pub/ipng/html/ipng-main.html>. For Linux IPv6 development information, see <http://www.linux-ipv6.org>. For specific information about IPv6 under Linux, read the HOWTO at <http://www.bieringer.de/linux/IPv6/>.
      To compile this protocol support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ipv6.


  • Option: IPV6_PRIVACY
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) IPv6: Privacy Extensions (RFC 3041) support
    • depends on IPV6
      Privacy Extensions for Stateless Address Autoconfiguration in IPv6 support. With this option, additional periodically-alter pseudo-random global-scope unicast address(es) will assigned to your interface(s).
      By default, kernel do not generate temporary addresses. To use temporary addresses, do
      echo 2 >/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/use_tempaddr
      See <file:Documentation/networking/ip-sysctl.txt> for details.


  • Option: INET6_AH
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IPv6: AH transformation
    • depends on IPV6
    • select XFRM
    • select CRYPTO
    • select CRYPTO_HMAC
    • select CRYPTO_MD5
    • select CRYPTO_SHA1
      Support for IPsec AH.
      If unsure, say Y.


  • Option: INET6_ESP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IPv6: ESP transformation
    • depends on IPV6
    • select XFRM
    • select CRYPTO
    • select CRYPTO_HMAC
    • select CRYPTO_MD5
    • select CRYPTO_SHA1
    • select CRYPTO_DES
      Support for IPsec ESP.
      If unsure, say Y.


  • Option: INET6_IPCOMP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IPv6: IPComp transformation
    • depends on IPV6
    • select XFRM
    • select INET6_TUNNEL
    • select CRYPTO
    • select CRYPTO_DEFLATE
      Support for IP Payload Compression Protocol (IPComp) (RFC3173), typically needed for IPsec.
      If unsure, say Y.


  • Option: INET6_TUNNEL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IPv6: tunnel transformation
    • depends on IPV6
    • select XFRM
      Support for generic IPv6-in-IPv6 tunnel transformation, which is required by the IPv6-in-IPv6 tunneling module as well as tunnel mode IPComp. If unsure, say Y.


  • Option: IPV6_TUNNEL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IPv6: IPv6-in-IPv6 tunnel
    • depends on IPV6
      Support for IPv6-in-IPv6 tunnels described in RFC 2473.
      If unsure, say N.
