Description

I'd like to please request the addition of IPoE as a selection method for IPv6 WAN interface configuration.
The reason being, Japanese ISPs almost solely offer PPPoE for ipv4 and IPoE for ipv6.
The use case is encapsulating ipv4 over ipv6, which a Netgate engineer informed me is currently not an option within pfsense.

The engineer and I tried DHCP6, SLAAC, and 6 to 4 tunnel. There was a redmine post made a couple years ago but no development to my knowledge.

The netgate engineer suggested maybe the Japanese ISPs are using VLAN tagging as well.
In the end we were through trial and error, going through the options but none worked.
I was able to pull a v6 IP eventually, but the subnet was abnormally large, so likely it was just an error.
There are Japanese manufactured routers that support IPoE specifically from Buffalo and NEC however documentation as to how they're achieving this isn't clear or non-existant.

I'd be willing to be part of the beta testing should any devs wish to see what the environment is like for Japanese ISPs.

Thanks!!
