I setup my server this way and disabled ipv6 on all the other
interfaces except the ethernet port. As it stands now the default
route is not replaced with a incorrect one it just vanishes.

Interesting, I wonder if there is a way to tell each interface to stop
ignore router advertisements. My searching tonight didn't reveal any

I previously was looking at the /etc/rtadvd.conf file and looking for
a way to add the correct default route to the configuration. My
thinking was if it advertised the correct default route the problem
would be solved.

Well I'm about to give up on this configuration and look at some other
possibilities. It seems like I'm missing some part of this
configuration or apple has another bug in their Ipv6 implementation.
Everything else is working but that default route just vanishes after
60 seconds or so.
Thanks again for the assistance,
