I would like to seek advices regarding to Cisco Firewall Module [WS-SVC-FWM-1] and IPv6 network.

At this moment, our server farm is capable to support IPv4/IPv6 network, and our servers are starting to use both to serve our end-users.

My questions are:

1. I enabled IPv6 on Cisco Firewall Module [WS-SVC-FWM-1], especially configured 'ipv6 address autoconfig' in interface level

2. in CLI mode, I can control IPv4 rule and IPv6 rule, But in ASDM I can't control IPv4 rule

(can't edit rule and apply rule)

is it bug ?

3. in FWSM redundancy, IPv4 no problem (can configuring standby ip) but how can I config standby ip in IPv6 address
