This will always fail, even with IPv4. Read about Wifi, BSSID, mac addresses and the bridging results...

> NAT (needs to be ported to SLIRPv6 library from VDE)
IPv6 does not come with NAT - or at least it should not.. There is mobile IPv6 for this.

> RDP server
This is the part I'm working on and which should work now, at least for the VNC plugin.

> UDP tunnel (host side is IPv4 only)

Need to change the implementation to allow IPv6 or dual sockets, something I will look into

> Not sure:
> VNC server
As the RDP Server is now a plugin enabled VRDE server, check the RDP part

> Host-only

Host-only should be layer 2 and nothing VBox should be concerned about

- Bridged to Wifi -> No.
- NAT -> No.
- RDP Server -> partly
- UDP tunnel -> No.
- VNC Server -> Yes.
- Host only -> No.
