Unfortunately, IPv6 support in almost any network hardware is pretty
lame. Yes, both C and J support IPv6, but that is often pretty slim
support, especially in terms of management and accounting. And they have
the nerve to charge extra for IPv6 capability that is missing most
features needed to provide true, production quality support.

It's even worse in areas like security products and various network
application, monitoring, and analysis devices.

About the only things that is pretty likely fully IPv6 capable is the
end system.
