send_packet6: Operation not permitted

The Problem

My syslog shows:

The Cause

DHCP for IPv6 uses different ports than IPv4, so your IPTABLES / CSF firewall may need to have its rules adjusted if you start using IPv6.

The Solution

Set your firewall to allow UDP in/out for:
IPv4: 67,68
IPv6: 546,547

That’s it. The error is gone.
