Description Andy Smith 2010-05-12 17:00:13 UTC
I believe it would be useful to make some mention of the fact ping6 is required to  ping IPv6 IP addresses in the IPv6 section of the handbook:

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/network-ipv6.html

Also might be worth mentioning nslookup by default will not search for AAAA records (yep I know its deprecated but bet its still used more often than any other DNS lookup tool).
Id say these are worth mentioning as other OSs donĀ“t necessarily behave the same way and this can be confusing for those who have to manage multiple OSs. IE solaris doesnt have a ping6 command, but Linux does etc....

thanks Andy.
