CONFIG_IPV6: The IPv6 protocol (EXPERIMENTAL)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IPV6 has multiple definitions:

The IPv6 protocol (EXPERIMENTAL) found in net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IPV6:

Help text

This is experimental support for the IP version 6 (formerly called IPng "IP next generation"). You will still be able to do regular IPv4 networking as well.

Features of this new protocol include: expanded address space, authentication and privacy, and seamless interoperability with the current version of IP (IP version 4). For general information about IPv6, see http://playground.sun.com/pub/ipng/html/ipng-main.html; for specific information about IPv6 under Linux read the HOWTO at http://www.bieringer.de/linux/IPv6/ and the file net/ipv6/README in the kernel source.

To compile this protocol support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ipv6.

It is safe to say N here for now.

This is complemental support for the IP version 6. You will still be able to do traditional IPv4 networking as well.
