Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1317222
typo in 2.4.2 IPv6
Last modified: 2016-06-07 18:04:40 EDT
Description of problem:
"...There are some security features that were side effects to NAT; the biggest being that outside traffic cannot make it inside the network unless a port is forwarded across the router. Because IPv6 solves the addressing problem there is no longer a need to use NAT. Everything can have a public IP address and, by extension, everything is not publically routable across the Internet when physical and logical connections are made."
Forgive me if I'm wrong but if I understand correctly, this should say:
"everything IS publically routable across the Internet when physical..."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
You can have a ULA (Unique Local Address) that is not routable across the Internet and you can also designate part of your public addresses to not be routable. That said, this part of the document would likely benefit from a makeover.
