Privacy Extensions

To enable Privacy Extensions for Stateless Address Autoconfiguration in IPv6 according to RFC 4941, reproducethe the following steps:

Add ipv6 to MODULES array in /etc/rc.conf.

Add these lines to /etc/sysctl.conf:

# Enable IPv6 Privacy Extensions
net.ipv6.conf.all.use_tempaddr = 2
net.ipv6.conf.default.use_tempaddr = 2

After a reboot, at the latest, Privacy Extensions should be enabled.
