[request] IPv6 enabled DSLR

Could the site admins look into IPv6 enabling the site?

* Sign * on if the site changes to Dual Stack.

Otherwise, *object* because not everyone has IPv6.

Just wondering...

Why do you object to the idea?

Thanks.

He always rejects, I think he has an auto script that replys with "object", just ignore him.

Well it would be nice to have a serious discussion with the site admin(s) about this subject matter. Their hosting provider NAC has a well connected network with 3 IPv6 transit providers (Telia, TInet, NLayer) and some peering (Hurricane, etc.). As far as I am aware they've been offering IPv6 service to co-lo/dedicated customers for awhile now. It looks like the site is utilizing nginx for the web server and some Linux-based OS. So at this point there should be no serious obstacles to offering IPv6 access to DSLR (meaning AAAA records for (www.)dslreports.com)...

Your statement is not accurate. I've *signed* to dozens of requests over the years.

It's thinking like this that got us into the mess in the first place.

I agree that IPv4 will be around for years. I disagree that there is no need for IPv6. There have been numerous articles about how slow the adoption for IPv6 has been. You'd think a site that caters to broadband topics might be one of the earlier adopters if for no other reason than saying "Hey, we're supporting IPv6. Why aren't you?"

So I'll *sign* in support of the original request to IPv6 enable the site.

Ok, that makes sence.

Completely flawed logic, but expected.

IPv4 will be around for years. In fact, it's not going anywhere. ISPs will be deploying carrier grade NAT (NAT444) where users sit behind multiple layers of NAT and are given private addresses.

When 1,000 people are sharing an IP address, it's going to be a pretty poor experience.

Eg. 1 user launches a brute force against a login on dslreports.com. What does dslreports.com do, do they ban the IP and block 999 other users from accessing the site?

Of course NAT444 users will likely have IPv6 so you could simply ban that IP knowing that most of those users will be going over IPv6. That's assuming dslreports.com has IPv6

NAC has IPv6 peering to the following major locations:

Equinix Ashburn
NYIIX
LINX (Europe - Brocade and Extreme)

Isn't this a technology site?

At least give us something. Even if it's a load balancer (or apache proxy) and a different subdomain ipv6.dslreports.com. (eg. ipv6.cnn.com)

We're moving our NAC equipment to Peak 10 in Charlotte, NC.

They asked us if we needed public IPv6 address space when we were working out the quote.

That would be a very good start.

Nothing but bs. We were already supposed to run out a while ago. Now in a year.

ARIN has allocated the last /8 on 2/3/11.

The IANA free pool of IPv4 addresses has reached 0%.

Of the RIR it looks like APNIC will deplete it's allocation
first. They're already rationing new deployments to
a /22.

Annoying band-aids will come ala CGN.

What I'm curious about is if this is all BS can you provide
some respected links or coverage saying we've got
plenty of IPV4 addresses and no worries? Thanks...

And your point being? You don't wait until the very last minute to flip the switch and enable v6 on hundreds of millions of routers/servers, etc. over night and hope that everything works out Ok.
