You are here

On the 6

Yup. I took the leap and have set up shop on the greater ip6 landscape. You can see far but it's pretty lonely out here. Not much traffic coming this way. And I am only able to test the server via IPv4Gate which offers a cool service where you append .ipv4.sixxs.org to the end of the domain of the web site you are interested in browsing to and it acts as an intermediary between your xenophobic old ip4 home connection and the great open ip6 vistas --- no complicated tunnel configuration required. This is kind of like NAT but it operates at a much higher level --- it needs to rewrite absolute URLs to use the domain prefix otherwise things break --- and that rewriting does break site linking to ip4 only sites.
