    204.152.*.* Now Available For Re-Allocation

    204.152.*.* Now Available For Re-Allocation

    When the new software detects that people have
    moved to IPv6 they clearly no longer need their
    IPv4 address space (land). It can be reallocated.

    ns.lah1.vix.com. 1171 IN A
    ns.lah1.vix.com. 1171 IN AAAA 2001:4f8:2::9
    ns.sql1.vix.com. 1171 IN A
    ns.sql1.vix.com. 1171 IN AAAA 2001:4f8:3::9
    ns-ext.vix.com. 1803 IN A
    ns-ext.vix.com. 1171 IN AAAA 2001:4f8:0:2::13

    The Community appreceates the donation.

    .PS One way to avoid this is to use the multiple A Record format where 2 A Records form the 64 bit IPv6 address. You can then be reached via one of
    FOUR ways, via IPv4 on either of the 32-bit
    prefixes or via IPv6 on either of the 64-bit
    prefixes. It is common to have one prefix on
    your DSL and the other on your cable modem.

    In the send-only [best-effort] Internet, the Source and Destination fields are BOTH used for Destination or at least prefixes. That allows for a 64-bit Destination field. The Source information is carried in other bits. ICMP is mostly removed from the protocol stack. Less is more and more reliable and secure. Less code, more secure, more reliable.

    ICANN is all about security and reliability right ?

    IETF Says NO to IPv6 Virus on Their Servers
    by Anonymous on Sunday August 07 2005, @07:08AM (#15830)
    Yesterday in the plenary in response to a request for making the IETF servers IPv6-capable, I believe Leslie said we shouldn't use IETF servers for testing.

    In and of itself I fully agree with that statement. However, the assumption that IPv6 is an experimental protocol and enabling it on the various IETF servers should be considered "testing" isn't exactly a glowing endorsement of 10 years of IETF work.

    It sounds distasteful, but we should really be eating your own dog food.

    Limiting myself to the www.ietf.org webservers (yes, this address points to two different hosts) it appears this site runs on:

    Server: Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat)
    Server: Apache/2.0.40 (Red Hat Linux) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.0.40 OpenSSL/ 0.9.7a

    Even though these Apache versions are 2 - 3 years old (with many vulnerabilities found and fixed in the mean time), they're fully capable of supporting IPv6, as are Red Hat Linux versions of around the same age.

    It would be a nice way to mark 7 years of RFC 2460 (or 10 years of RFC 1883, both were published in december) and the closing of the IPv6 wg with addition of IPv6 to at least the IETF WWW servers.

    (BTW a big "yuck" for being behind two-faced DNS here at the IETF meeting venue.)
