I am trying to get to know more about IPv6 using a shoreline firewall 
(shorewall + shorewall6) on Debian without having a real allocated global 
address yet. I have a box with 4 ethernet interfaces sitting piggy-back on an 
IPv4 firewall, with the first interface using DHCP from the IPv4 firewall. Each 
of the other interfaces would have the global address plus a site local fdxx 
address, where only the first 62 bits of the site local address prefixes are 
identical. I intended to use site local prefixes for local connections and an 
allocated global prefix for all non-local connections. I have installed bind9 
on the firewall with all relevant addresses available. I can configure static 
boxes individually using IP-Route to choose the correct site or global prefix 
suitable for the destination, and shorewall6 appears able to configure its own 
interfaces with multiple addresses, but I am having problems trying to set up 
RADVD to provide the same information to laptops and other mobiles. Is it 
Thanks for any information.
