Weee (my blog) appears to have grown too big to dive professionally and seems a point to start the moral being children should not be in olympics teams like usa gymnastics can attest to more on that in the future.
So sport aside in this and that you probably may have noticed something.
Beneath the yes it exists is a layer of consultants and salesmen looking at vendor lock in, want a manual ? they dont exist, and voodoo like console commands on supported routers .
Sure ip4 also has per configuration settings, but i dont know the ipv6 equivalent settings are but i do expect to buy a basic router and expect it to work as such without having to engage an army of gurus and salesmen getting involved ipv6 appears to be voodoo and never mentioned by these firms.
It is not my problem but if i cant buy it and switch things on without an army of ipv6 guris how is ipv6 usage supposed to increase ? Maybe a fairy will turn it on by magic and everything will be ipv6 native.
2018 will be the year the monkey house tried to go dual stack ipv4 and ipv6, – we need new routers – internal and external since i do not want to run nsa approved firmware i went looking at routers supporting openwrt,dd-wrt (deceptive site clones ahoy) which says all is not well with open firmware.
Sisyphus is still a role model
That got me to LEDE which is the reincarnation of embeded linux. it seems openwrt and dd-wrt are not being developed if so your on your own
I still have to buy an external router and do ipv6 things so there’s a cost to implementing ipv6, our poe wifi thing (my blog) appears to be a stumbling block so internal ipv6 is harder than external ipv6 because of tunnelling.
Brand name routers are out for being horrendous in cost so i went down the rabbit hole – pfsense routera too expensive, but nice, microtik need microshit windows to configure meh i would have to wait for snow in hell first before i think that is a good idea.
Internally ubiquiti look good and the most expensive component is the wifi [a c protocol support and n] It seems i will be buy ubiquity and run our existing ipv4 extender.with it The outside connection is easier if pricey
I have also replaced an idiot switch (my blog) to begin with so that has helped as the speed was going from 1gb to 100mb and then back again.
Overall open router hardware is a bit of a mess although the lede project is going in the right direction.
Would i buy a new brand name consumer grade router – no.
Ipv6 in part of the zoo’s real world is a bit broken since the zoo currently has a ghetto ipv6 range of addresses and works on the one router
The ipv6 community was not that helpful how dare i downgrade to ipv4 because some sites only work with it despite supporting ipv6.
I am still not sure even if our isp would be willing to ipv6 reverse dns entries. I suppose you have to be one to get an answer.
ipv6 at this point does seem faster than ipv4 but then it has less load on it now.
Getting rfx 4941 slaac privacy extensions that’s
in your network file ala
iface eth0 inet6 dhcp privext 2
Does not appear to work in linux with ipv4, although the screen shot in the entry says yes depending upon its mood (at the start it still gave me 20/20 with no reverse dnsI stil have no idea if our ipv6 addresses are changing and use on our internal lans so ipv4 does still have advantages.
Please do not tell the ipv6 gurus that.
I would love to experiment further with ipv6 but my isp will not do dual stack, which means i lose all of the zoo’s existing servers for something that i have little experience in. As most of you still have ipv4 it makes a forced change to ipv6 fool hardy.
ipv6 routers are a little easier to get but i would rather do both that one or the other.
So to do ipv6 here in the zoo
- ipv6 connection
- point 1 needs a new telecom end user kit
- another router to handle ipv6, or a switch to use one i have already. Possible one extra ethernet card
Ghetto ipv6 is possible by me
- new telecom end user kit
- another tunnel but since that is not the same isp as we have now some ipv6 validators will think its a vpn.
So i am unable to dual stack easily.
- our original isp would support both v4 and v6 using new modem
So i think it is best to give up and just run ipv6 on our internal lan although not many use it.
But i did not stop here and created yet another tunnel for a zoo’s server unfortunately it seems to not route on linux and ipv6 takes precedence so it means that it seems i can only run with ipv4 at the present time without buying some hardware as listed above.
This is my fault if your an ipv6 guru but its not easy its ping -6 nmap -6 ip -6 and secretive societies of here was something that may work.
I have a working network spec for servers except i cant route data with radvd which conflicts with the ghetto lan on server hardware and probably a gateway issue.
As to whether my tunnel can send email is not a question i want to know if it fails to then like it not the ipv6 config is certainly not real internet and another reason to not implement ipv6.
Sisyphus is still a role model
End user sites that stopped working instant ink (my blog) with dual stack and netflix which did not like that the isp switched. so plenty of problems still even with glitch fixing.
Hardware wise a tv (my blog) could not get an ipv6 address, then again if it had i do doubt the drm would allow it to show anything. Big catch 22 there
Then a week in my clients on our zoo lan stopped getting ipv6 via the tunnel. Not that it really mattered.
I did buy a book (my blog) about ipv6 via an ipv4 online bookshop. I will let you think on the irony there.
The moral here is do not believe ipv6 gurus and evangelists that ipv6 is easy or ready for the mainstream – Panasonic (my blog) and others can probably prove that to you.
