Hey there,

VIMAGE is one way to go about it. Another is setting a
static address via "ip6.addr" if it is using a real interface
or a bridge. When using lo1 interfaces, I will just use the
private ipv6 subnet space, fd00::/8 and forward the traffic
required from the host to the jail. Really it all depends on
what you need or want to achieve.

Best regards,
Richard Gallamore
