Well, I wrote a lot of the original IPv6 stuff (back when it was PIPE -> SIP ->
SIPP) for KA9Q, have the source around here somewhere....
But now I'd just use Linux. Alan Cox ported the KA9Q AX25 code long ago.
Since everybody and his brother is coming out of the woodwork -- sadly, I've
not done any AX25 since my grandfather Marvin Allen Maten (W8TQP) died; that
was one of the things we did together. Although he was a ham since circa 1916,
he was always wanting to try the latest! His QSL contacts went back so far, he
knew Hugo Gernsback and his brother (who actually ran the electronics store).
