Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • There is a no match module for the addrtype in ip6tables.
  • This module is required for supporting IPv6 in traffic distribution device(Load Balance) which based on RHEL. Use to control the traffic in specific addrtype.
  • In ip6tables and iptable, addrtype module of the match extension should be supported in the same way.
