Re: IPv6 beta
said by squircle:I think it probably just has to do with the way the PPPoE service works with TekSavvy. I recall configuring a PPPoE daemon, and basically you assign an address to an endpoint (in the IPv6 world, this is a /64), and then you would separately assign any routes that you wanted to route in addition. Hence in the IPv4 world you get a static IP, and then a completely different /29, if you order them from TekSavvy. Same general deal with IPv6 (this is conjecture, but it's what I suspect).
I guess what I'm still wondering is why there are two separate subnets, and why there can't just be one /56 or one /64 (or one /whatever) (things my CCNA didn't teach me).
