    You are correct. IPv4 firewalls do not block ipv4 traffic. I'm not sure why Apple decided to leave ipv6 unfilttered. It seems a mistake to me.

    It's probably just an oversight...I expect they will fix this quickly. It's not like Apple to ship a product with the default security so lax.

    So would the best config at the moment be...

    ---------
    IPv6 mode: Tunnel
    (tick) Block incoming IPv6 connections
    ---------

    or

    ---------
    IPv6 mode: Link-local only
    ---------

    :confused:
