So, let the modem be a modem, not a router, and do ip where it belongs,
on the host/router. Now, for the more intresting questions, where to
find a decent ipv6 firewall.... (yes bleeding edge linux kernels have

And that is a problem, far to many new applications still get developed
for ipv4 only, rather than using the generic interfaces available....
