At present in SEP 12.1, The FW rule does not allow user to specify ipv6 address.

Could we have this Enhancement coming in the Latest Releases of SEP 12.1?

Another vote for this. I can't deploy or recommend the firewall feature until this is supported. At a minimum, IPv6 link local unicast and multicast traffic should be available, public IPv6 on same subnet would be a plus, ability to define ranges also a plus. The all or nothing makes me nervous. It can 'sort of' be adjusted by allowing ports. I moved up from 11.0 and just assumed IPv6 ranges could be entered by now.
