IPv6 infrastructure for Global and/or Site Specific IPv6 address

    Can you please refer to an implementation document for IPv6 that explains the
    hardware/software and setup required such that a machine can get a routeable
    Global/Site Specific IPv6 address (such as 2002:... rather than fe80:...) ?

    Operating IPv6 on our test machines results in a link-local IPv6 generated
    address only. Thing is that kind of IPv6 address is not routable and seems we
    cannot add it to DNS (even if the machine has only one NIC).

    It looks like we must add an IPv6 router that has all IPv6 related services
    and I assume it will then contact DNS for IPv6 info of a new machine that has
    joined the network, while the new machine's IPv6 stack will not allow manual
    insertion of global IPv6 address.

    Please advise...
