    Thuis is good news. Dual cloud enabled s/w available for public consumption. Not to mention a block of v6 addy's !!

    Bob fink, Steve deeringb et al, must be really happy that V6 is moving forward and gaininf traction.
    2- Jason @ May 3, 2005 10:29 PM

    Holy SHIT -- that's freaking cool. I assume that this isn't just for Earthlink customers, nor are they promising permanent blocks of IPs, and that it's all just a testbed, right?
    3- Antoin O Lachtnain @ May 3, 2005 11:14 PM

    Joi, that sounds great. This is how it was meant to be, no?

    Obviously the next step with this is going to be to encourage other ISPs to flip the switches locally to encourage them to provide their own IPv6 service.

    Is there something ICANN could do to gently encourage ISPs to do the right thing as regards offering this service? Maybe they could get some sort of preferential treatment for IP address or something?
    4- David Beckemeyer @ May 4, 2005 01:41 AM

    Jason, good question. The IPv6 sandbox is indeed available for anyone. You don't need to be an EarthLink customer to participate.

    We're not really promising anything with this sandbox (see disclaimers). That said, we don't expect to have to take these addresses back any time soon. If anything, the main factor that could cause us to have to shut down the testbed would be if the network load or other real costs assocuted with the IPv6 testbed hits the radar of the bean counters.

    That is pretty sweet. I'll be installing that...
    6- /pd @ May 4, 2005 07:04 AM

    Ok its me again.. firstly I posted my comments when on the move w/blackberry..so forgive the typo err's !!

    I think the issues here is full BGP support on a v6 cloud is not possible. The v6 enable is more netted towards internal, for the wire consumption. I wonder how the other ISP will support Dual could routing ??

    Anyhow, if anyone is playing in the sandbox, do send me and email. I just may get back into this --- I dropped the ball in 1999 !! :)-

    There is only one problem, Joi. What incentive is there to do this if I am *not* a geek full of technocrap vanity?
    8- Joi Ito @ May 4, 2005 03:41 PM ... but you are Don. ;-)

    I think the point is not so much that everyone should run out and do this, but that they have shown that it's not as hard as people have assumed. This will allow people to start working on applications and when those applications are interesting enough people can switch.
    9- Antoin O Lachtnain @ May 4, 2005 06:24 PM

    The other reason is to make the technology easily available to application and higher-level protocol developers. For example, a lot of effort is going into writing NAT-busting P2P applications at the moment. Obviously, IPv6 has implications for that, and this gives them a chance to experiment with their applications in an IPv6 environment.
    10- Don Park @ May 5, 2005 09:46 AM

    Guilty as charged, Joi, but my point was that there is no compelling incentive for users to pay premium to switch to IPv6 service although I can see tons of incentives for developers for obvious reasons. The switchover must be driven by user demand. All that aside, I was surprised about the simplicity of what Earthlink did.
