Quote from: patrickdk on July 01, 2010, 09:16:22 AMIf you have a native ipv6 with a /48 subnet, your isp will do it one of two ways.If they static route it, they will know where your subnet is, so none of this is an issue, they will internally handle it on their end.If it's not, but your using a routing protocol (rip, bgp), then they will assign an ip for your router to use to talk to them, the same way he assigns you the ::2 ip to use, and you talk to ::1

Quote from: patrickdk on July 01, 2010, 10:25:31 AMIF it's your own space, or it's a larger provider, they will give you a small block out of their own /32 or whatever they have, and use that to talk to your router (a /64 between you and your isp like he does).Then they will route the /48 just like he does, over that /64 they setup with you, out of the providers /32 they have.So the world only sees the /32 route, not the little /64, and the world also sees your /48
