Q. IPv4 by default protect internal host using RFC 1918 private IP address. But IPv6 offers direct global address which result into exposing all internal hosts as well. How do I create default IPv6 firewall to drop all incoming (except ping6 request) connection and only allow outgoing requests from Linux workstation?
