I don't see the problem. I've deployed IPv6 in may web servers, and nothing
failed, we had firewall support for IPv6 most of the time, and otherwise we
used iptables6. The DNS thing has been replied already as I can see.

I think we have lots of documents on-line explaining all this, including our
own IPv6 Portal ( And if answer is not there, let me
know and I will try to create a new document for you about that specific

In fact, the problem may be that there are *too many* documents, and too
much to read, so my recommendation is *start now* with a very practical mind
set, at least with a pilot.
