 IP6Tables is the firewalling tool for [IPv6] under [Linux]. 
-Unfortunately it's reasonably immature as of 2003-08-10 , and doesn't support important things like connection based tracking. 
+As of the Linux 2.6.21 kernel , the Netfilter code base has the new layer 3 connection tracking code in place, so enabling connection tracking for IPv6 is as simple as a configuration option in make config (Note: It is marked as experimental).  
+Once you've enabled everything, you can set up your ip6tables just as you would your IPv4 iptables. This provides the final piece in a sane deployment of IPv6 on the Internet
