Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : AmigaWorld is now IPv6 enabled
   posted by sibbi on 28-Oct-2011 0:00:20 (2019 reads)
Hello,

I am pleased to announce that we have been allocated some IPv6 address space from our hosting provider and have enabled IPv6 connectivity for the site.

I have now IPv6 enabled all of the services offered except the IRC service, we will continue to work on that project and hopefully have it finished soon.

There have been some reported issues with "broken" IPv6 setups on various computers on the Internet, due to IPv6 autoconfiguration (which is enabled by default in many newer operating systems and on many devices, despite them not having any working IPv6 connection).

Therefore, in the odd chance that you suddenly experience some problems accessing the site, please take a look at your IPv6 configuration (following the guide for whatever operating system you use) and if needed, and if you are not using your IPv6 connectivity, disable the IPv6 configuration.

Report your experiences in the comments, good or bad.

AmigaOS4.1 does not support IPv6.

Now we only need an IPv6 tcp/ip stack and IPv6 browser

What about a bounty to update AROS/MOS TCP?

It isn't a big problem right now, the pickup of IPv6 is still rather slow (although it is picking up).

It might become a problem for some in 2-3 years time when we start seeing ISPs that are only offering IPv6, I can see ISPs offering solutions for users that can't use IPv6 for a long time though so it's not likely to become a major concern, at least not in the near future.

It's coming however, and it's best to prepared

Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

It would be better to know that my OS4.1 computer is ready for ipv6. The rate of technological change is accelerating and might mean that the changeover will happen quicker than anyone expects. Would it be wise to buy a $2000-3000 computer that might not be able to access major Internet sites in 2-3 years or less?

@Xenix

There are still going to be a lot of computers that don't have any IPv6 Internet access in 2-3 years time despite the ongoing advance in IPv6 connectivity. Sites will remain available on IPv4 for a long long time, at least 10 years and most likely more, they might however (and probably will be) available over IPv6 as well.

Even if your computer only has IPv4 connectivity you can still have a router that is capable of IPv6 access, and the router can then take your IPv4 address, translate it to a working IPv6 address and then back, in a similar way as it does today for your internal 10.X.X.X or 192.168.X.X address, translating it to a valid Internet IP address and back by means of NAT...

So I wouldn't worry about it, it's not going to be a showstopper for Internet access any time soon, and there many ways to get around it even if that were the case.

IPv6 connectivity is all a matter of software, not hardware... so go buy your AmigaOne X1000 anyway, software will be fixed in due time!
