    Hi everyone!

    I am currently setting up a Mobile IPv6 test bench using a few FreeBSD machines. The goal would be to have a home agent, mobile node, corresponding node and a care-of network operating.

    I have done a fair bit of research and discovered that the kame project (http://kame.net/) is integrated into FreeBSD since 4.0. I have also found another project called SHISA (http://www.mobileip.jp/). This leads to the following questions:

    Is Mobile IPv6 enabled in the FreeBSD kernel by default?

    The KAME and SHISA sites say that SNAPs are for cutting edge users. I just wish to set up my own test bench. Will I need to compile the kernel with snaps?

    Finally, I have found two HOW-TOs:
    KAME: http://www.kame.net/newsletter/20031007/
    SHISA: http://www.kame.net/newsletter/20050707/

    Which one (KAME or SHISA) should I be using?

    Cheers :D

    Not sure about mobile IPv6 but there's a fully functional IPv6 stack. My home network has been running IPv6 for several years now.
