IPv6 is pretty much free to run on a play level. In the next couple of months, I'm planning on having some equipment up on IPv6, and I will be happy to offer tunneling services at a near free cost (just a token amount to avoid dealing with people who aren't really interested) to anyone who wants to play around with it.
The basic idea is that you will be able to take a router (or a server) capable of IPv6, give it a normal IPv4 address on your network, and tunnel in (basically using the same concept as a VPN, sort of). There are also free services out there as well, albeit with nominal support.
From a few discussions I've had on this, it is good to know sooner rather
than later. While widespread adoption is a few years away, there are carriers who will be transitioning to IPv6 on the transit level before that point. It doesn't affect your ability to offer IPv4 services through them, but, your interconnect will be IPv6, so on and so forth. -Clint Ricker Kentnis Technologies On 5/25/07, Mike Hammett <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
Windows XP supports IPv6. There is a separate IPv6 Internet. You need to buy your IPv6 service from a different provider that support it. Once I get settled and can afford the separate IPv6 feed without an immediate return, I'll be getting it. Everything I have is Mikrotik and they should have IPv6 implemented at some point. ----- Mike Hammett Intelligent Computing Solutions http://www.ics-il.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mike Bushard, Jr" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "'WISPA General List'" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Thursday, May 24, 2007 10:59 PM Subject: RE: [WISPA] IPv6 - anyone using it? >I really dread IPv6.....so much more complicated. > > I probably would run it, but from my understanding there is a ton of > equipment on the internet backbone that won't route it.
