Make your IPv6 accessible website known out there

January 28th, 2011 No comments

Dont forget, make your website accessible via IPv6 and submit them here:

It might be worth considering to make your already IPv6 enabled website accessible only via IPv6 on the World IPv6 day… join me in!

Your IPv6 address is static

January 22nd, 2011 No comments

Yeah, at the moment (will that change in future?) your IPv6 address (as it is most likely done via a 6in4 tunnel in your place) is a static one. Just read that again.

Just something mindboggling about the address space:

I have a /64 range locally. Thats about as much as one IPv4 range for everybody on planet earth – only for you alone.

Test your IPv6 connection

January 22nd, 2011 1 comment

I just came across with the World IPv6 day on the 8th of June 2011 an IPv6 connectivity testing website.

Its great. I got 10 out of 10 for dual stack, and 10 out of 10 with IPv6 only.

I am ready. Let it come. I am gonna embrace it.

13 days with IPv6 enabled

January 20th, 2011 No comments

I am now for exactly 13 days IPv6 ready. Ok, there are not many websites out what you can use on IPv6. The biggest one probably I know is a german IT news portal

No problems so far. As I wrote in my initial blog “on day 2″ I am using the 6to4 tunnel from Hurricane Electrics’ I wrote the latency is a bit high, but thats not true. I just did some tests and it is ok, obviously not so good as goo’ ol’ native IPv4, but it is fine.

This blog is also accessible via IPv6. And actually, I just realized writing this article is done over an IPv6 connection!

Dont forget to mark this in your calender: 8th June 2011 is World IPv6 Day.

I would like to finish with this advice to all IT people out there: Get up to speed with IPv6 now, as when you need it, you need to implement it quickly and in a rush. And all of you know how it works out when you have to implement something in a rush. Do not underestimate it, it is not just the successor of  IPv4. A considerable amount of things will change… MAC addresses as you know them now in IPv4 will be going away and so forth and so on.

I am certain IPv6 wont be coming slowly. At first yes, but then it will just explode.
