[plug] IPv6 revisited

Hi Plug

I recently implemented IPv4 firewalling on our devices at work and
Phillip Smith's talk on 'husk' for firewalling both IPv4 and IPv6 at
the LCA Sysadmin miniconf [1] reminded me again that I really need to
get a proper grip on IPv6.

So, I followed Adrian Woodley's advice and got an Internode account.
Internode says I got:
+ A dynamic /64 IPv6 prefix for your PPP session.
+ A static /56 IPv6 prefix for your LAN (if you are using a router
with Prefix Delegation).

What's the difference between these two prefixes?

Adrian's Plug talk on IPv6 could probably answer some of my questions,
but is still 'private' on youtube.
