IPv6 [Jul. 15th, 2008|02:05 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick

I saw that this was open sourced today:


I followed our internal instructions for using it and now I have IPv6 on my desktop at work. Any good IPv6 sites to hit? (besides the Great Experiment, which isn't quite SWF)

The solution to the chicken and egg problem is porn?

Free tit pictures are a huge motivator for horny geeks.

Most of my IPv6 traffic ends up to RIRs and other sites promoting IPv6. Otherwise its the typical dancing turtle and a new wiggling google.

With the exception of a Wii and iPhone all my home network is IPv6 enabled. I was blindly hoping for a "Enable IPv6" toggle on iPhone 2.0. IPv6 is gaining mindshare with engineers, but not users or developers. The return of end-to-end IP connectivity is exciting to me, and would be even more exiting if I was a talented developer.

If I can gather enough interest in Seattle I've thought of hosting an IPv6 BOF/Hackfest to get people experimenting with it. I shouldn't take much to get modern applications and embedded open *nix device supporting V6 and auto tunnels. That could help seed some of the necessary infrastructure.

wow- i had somehow not heard of the Great Experiment until now, but i have no words for it-
it is my current mental pinnacle of "a couple NWEs got around late one night, slightly intoxicated, and came up with..."

i don't think it will work, but still :)
i've been trying to push some ideas about apps that without IPV6 simply don't work, which then will let the market demand that the OSes and providers fully support it-
of course, if those apps aren't popular enough, then the point is moot-

I'm confused. How is this different from simply running radvd?

When your network has a zillion different subnets, getting native IPv6 routed to them all is a lot of work. Stubl is a quick fix.

Is this stubl thing different from Teredo in some useful way?

I got IPv6 connectivity by running apt-get install miredo. It just worked.
