Hi I'm running FreeBSD 4.9 and I'm having a little difficulty with 

%uname -a
FreeBSD polo.asap.bc.ca 4.9-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE-p1 #1: Thu 
Feb  5 16:23:04 PST 2004     
root at polo.asap.bc.ca:/usr/src/sys/compile/POLO  i386

Here's what's happening.

%dig @localhost

; <<>> DiG 8.3 <<>> @localhost
; (2 servers found)
;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch
;; res_nsend: Protocol not supported

So, I did some reading this is an error that is coming up for those 
trying to enable IPV6 on their system. I'm not trying to do that , so I 
got the idea to re-enable IPV6 in the kernel. Well, what do you know, I 
know get normal output when issuing a dig command.

My question is what do I need to have IPV6 enable ? Is it some 
configuration option of named that I overlooked ?
