Can SSH/SFTP to an IPV6 IP address from Solaris 10?

I'm in the process of trying to acquire an IPV6 IP address to use for testing, but I need to know, is there anything in Solaris 10 that needs to be configured so that it can SSH/SFTP to a server with an IPV6 IP address?

My Solaris 10 server is connected to a Cisco 2960 switch, which, I've been told is IPV6 ready because it's already functioning purely as layer 2.

i.g. no

you need to run rtadv or dhcpv6 on your router to get addresses

normally ipv6 auto configuration is enabled, so if your router is instrumented correctly everything works (like solaris or linux, or mac 10.4+ or windows XP+)

*BSD might need some care, but they are well documented, so that rtsol manual page contains the whole cookbook.

How do I check my Solaris 10 to know if IPV6 auto configuration is enabled already or not?

if you have a file /etc/hostname6.fxp0 then it will attempt to configure fxp0 with ipv6
