World IPv6 day is June 8th, 2011

Do check out if your connection or device supports IPv6 here and read more about the IPv6 problem here.Almost forgot, due to all the issues I bumped into today, that June 8, 2001 is World IPv6 Day. I’m sure a lot of you already knew that we are running out of IPv4 IPs, thus the need to shift to IPv6.

Do check out if your connection or device supports IPv6 here and read more about the IPv6 problem here.

Just check this IPv4 stats out:

    … backwards compatibility ?

    Most (if not all) of us, no IPv6 detected talaga kasi mga ISP naten di pa configured para dun. So depende sa ISP kung configured na DNS nila o hindi pa. Mostly nga, if not all, hindi pa.

  7. ISPs, I wouldn’t expect them to do anything about it anytime soon, especially here in the Philippines.

    What they’ll do is just setup 6to4 or 6in4 on their end, and maybe IPv6-native will be deployed at a much later time once their customers are upgraded to IPv6-capable modems and routers.

    That’s the biggest problem right now for the ISPs, there are so few (and those few are mostly buggy to this date) modem/routers that are IPv6 capable. But if you really want to start connecting to IPv6, setup a tunnel, easiest for everyone –> http://gogo6.com

    Or hack your modem/router if it’s DD-WRT / OpenWRT compatible :p (then install your tunnel there, since no local ISPs offer IPv6-native yet anyway). Consider your security too, last I checked, there are no out-of-the-box IPv6-compatible firewalls yet.

    Regardless, the transition should be transparent for most users. For the next decade or so, we’ll see dual-stack setups (IPv4+IPv6), after that transition period, that’s the only time we’ll truly see an IPv6-only Interwebs (and start seeing 4to6 or 4in6 if there are still IPv4-only sites).

    Your internet connection is IPv6 capable
    2001:fd8:600:10::5

    Address type is
    Global Unicast / Native IPv6

    Your IPv6 address on the public Internet appears to be 2001:fd8:600:10::5
