ie - I've just obtained a /48 for the Lusaka IXP. Once implemented -
this should help get the connected ISP's also to start running IPv6 and
to help persuade their up-streams to support native IPv6..

Name and shame?
This is the sort of info that needs to be shared - the problems and
eventual solutions.

So far - I've had no problems - except in knowledge....

1 - how does one configure a dial-up Cisco (eg Cisco-5300) to deliver
IPv6 - along with IPv4 (I'm looking for config examples).
Of course Dial-up is nearly dead - but I'd still like to do this -
allocate a /48 to the device and give /56's to each dial-up - somehow
controlled from Freeradius.

2 - how does one on a Cisco do traffic shaping on IPv6 services - ie
ssh/telnet with a higher priority than other traffic.
