Check your IPv6 connectivity
In order to check that the stack works, execute #ping6 ::1

If the result is the following (or similar):

PING ::1(::1) with 56 data bytes

64 bytes from ::1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.046 ms
64 bytes from ::1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.016 ms
64 bytes from ::1: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.013 ms
64 bytes from ::1: icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.012 ms
64 bytes from ::1: icmp_seq=5 ttl=64 time=0.009 ms

It means that you already have installed, correctly, the IPv6 stack in your machine.

How to install the IPv6 stack

The only thing you must do is publishing the file /etc/rc.conf and adding the following code line:

IPv6_enable="YES"

Moreover, if you want to assign an IPv6 fixed address to your machine, you also have to add a code line similar to the following:

ipv6_ifconfig_r10="2001:618:10:4:4 prefixlen 64"

Where 2001:618:10:4:4 is the IPv6 address and 64 is the network prefix.
