I just discovered a horribly annoying problem with the IPv6 firewall in the Airport Extreme. It doesn’t operate as “let these addresses have access to devices on the home network” (the source). It operates as “let the world access X service on this IPv6 address on my home network” (the destination). After beating my head on why I couldn’t ssh to my closetserver, I carefully re-read the Extreme’s setup dialog to realize this gem. The other half to this, if my external IPv4 address ever changes, I have to go re-edit my IPv6 firewall rules to account for the new 6to4 address.

I also discovered the holy grail, a Rolling Stone shoot that has Blake Lively and Leighton Meester together. This soothes the Airport anger for now.
