Summary0005772: IPv6 disabled by default when using PPP
DescriptionBy default, IPv6 is disabled when using PPP. This is because the file /etc/ppp/options is as follows:

lock

For IPv6 to work, /etc/ppp/options should be as follows:

lock
ipv6 ,

Note the space and the comma after "ipv6".

I have only verified this on systems where networking was not enabled during the installation. Perhaps the result is different if networking is enabled, but note that Ethernet is now disabled by default during the installation: see http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/CentOS6#head-b67e85d98f0e9f1b599358105c551632c6ff7c90
