      IPv6 trouble

      I've recently thought about moving my server over to IPv6. I know Google have added it however you need to apply by emailing them with you're interest. I tried the facebook IPv6 servers and couldn't connect either

      Hmm, I found one that works while searching for a website that would tell me my external IPv6 (If I had one): http://[2001:1af8:1:f006::6]/

      Could anybody tell me firstly how I can get my external IPv6 and secondly when they believe its safe to drop the A records on my DNS and solely use AAAA (right now I only have A, no point in me adding AAAA If I can't even use them to test)

      Re: IPv6 trouble

      It is not just a case of saying I will use IPv6, you will not get an IPv6 address until the ISP offers them. Up till now very few UK ISPs offer this type of address and I am not sure if the existing routers(Sky ones) are able to implement it. It is forecasted that IPv4 addresses will run out next year.
