Well it depends what you want to accomplish. You will run into asymetrical routing if not planned accordingly. what is it you want to do that you want to run v4 and v6 on seperate interfaces

I have a network topology of trusted, dmz and untrusted.  I would like to keep the trusted under IPv4 and NAT.  And the server in dmz will have a public IPv6 address and a IPv4 address to communicate with those computers in the trusted network.
