Juniper SSG (formerly Netscreen) supports IPv6 in ScreenOS 6.0 and up.

FWIW, there are typically notable differences in v6 feature parity vs v4. So for those folks that are actually using this stuff "supports v6 -- check!" isn't good enough and may result in some nasty surprises later on.

For example, Netscreens cannot presently filter IPv6 in transparent (bridged) mode, only in routed mode. The feature is AFAIK in the roadmap but over a year away.
