I finally decided to take the plunge and get a HE IPv6 tunnel and address since my ISP doesn’t hand out IPv6 for static addresses.
Now that the the Omnia will route to the exact internal address in my subnet (for IPv6), this has brought up some questions about IPv6, which is why I’m going through this excersize.
One question I have is how to best set the IPv6 address on my main server. It’s IPv4 address is statically set, but the IPv6 address was assigned, I believe, from SLAAC and includes the MAC address.
I am considering just using the SLAAC address, but I’m concerned about reducing the occurrence of personally identifiable information, so would be interested in not having the MAC address be part of the IPv6 address.
Does anyone have any strategy or best practice they have decided to use for assigning static IPv6 addresses?
I was hoping to avoid using a dynamic dns client to update my domain registrar, but I may end up doing this to keep the records correct.
