I have a question about IPv6.
I installed /net/freenet6 and edited the /usr/local/etc/gw6c.conf file with 
the login and password given by Go6.net.
I added freenet6_enable="YES", ipv6_enable="YES" and 
ipv6_network_interfaces="vr0 tun0" to my /etc/rc.conf.
An ifconfig shows this :
bsdaddict# ifconfig vr0
vr0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:0c:76:c2:2c:b7
        inet6 fe80::20c:76ff:fec2:2cb7%vr0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active
So I think the installation of ipv6 is ok : surfing to 
http://go6.net/4105/freenet.asp says "You are using IPv6 from ...". But in 
X-chat, when connecting to Freenode p.ex., I get this :

 FreebsdBeni n=FreeBSD :You are now logged 
in. (id FreebsdBeni, username n=FreeBSD, hostname

And that is not a ipv6 address. So what am I missing here ? Is it my config or 
is my isp converting my ipv6 back to ipv4 ?

Thanks for any hints on this.
