Linux IPv6 Router/Host ie. "Set Up IPv6 in an Hour"
Adding a Linux Router box in your LAN enables native IPv6 connectivity on all hosts. Similarly, you can just install a regular Workstation which has IPv6 enabled.
Setting up IPv6 manually on all hosts from e.g. Freenet6 can be a rather time-consuming process, and not suited for connecting entire networks. More time- and cost-effective means must be made available. This is where this "productized" Linux router comes in handy. The same features can naturally be obtained from here and there too, but packaging it makes the whole process easier and faster.
The key feature is that current IPv4 network topology need not be changed. You just add a Linux box to the network (or modify a current one) to act as IPv6 router; it will not route IPv4 traffic. It connects to other IPv6 hosts using a static or 6to4 tunnel(s) using existing IPv4 topology.
