We have a pair of CoyotePoint's running the beta software, but it's not gone
smoothly thus far.  Still at the "trying to configure" stage.

Coyote Point EQOS 10 (currently in open beta) supports IPv6 as well for
their GX series of load balancers. Not having participated in the beta I
don't know how good it is but its a good start. I was told IPv6 was one of
their top most requested features. Maybe some day IPv6 will not be just "a
feature" and will be a mandatory core component of any and all software that
talks on the Internet like IPv4 is today. Might make for a good comedy skit,

"NEW and IMPROVED! Our product now features IPv4 support out of the box"
