Hello folks

Very excited to be currently working on an upcoming Geekzone IPv6 trial with our hosting provider, ICONZ.

We are just working in our database and scripts, although NS updates won't come until some time in the next few weeks.

Just interested to know who amongst us would have IPv6 access enabled now?

I know my work colleague has been using IPv6 himself, in a Linux/Unix environment for SSH Tunneling for our remote boxes, and since we are ordering new kit shortly - will be getting it setup on my new work desktop. I could trial it once it is up and running.

Awesome to know that GeekZone is advancing :)

Most likely we will continue to use www.geekzone.co.nz and just fallback to IPv4 if your IPv6 provider can't "see" ICONZ.

I have a xnet IPv6 account and am gradually getting it all sorted out. Surprising how much kit is not IPv6 enabled.

Yeah, I got a Cisco 877 off trademe to use with xnet's v6..
Keep an eye out, I paid $300 for mine! Works great..

I have IPv6 Access at both work (Datacentre) and at home, would be good to finally see your site come up as IPv6 :) - Can you track the stats of how many users are connecting by v6 vs v4?

We will probably be able to track, once it's live.

Are ISPs already issuing native IPv6 accounts? I didn't think there was much (reasonable) hardware support for it.

I'm in the middle of replacing my current router with a pfSense solution and the current stable release doesn't support IPv6. It is planned for or slightly after the 2.0 release though so I will hopefully attempt to have it sorted then.

Some of them are on trial basis.. they don't really have support other than "you need to set on your CPE"..

Xnet has cisco 857/877 config files up though.

It's coming along nicely... According to the folks at ICONZ we should have all the configuration done by next Tuesday. I will then switch nameservers around and whoever got IPv6 connectivity will see Geekzone through it...

And here is evidence of the first IPv6 post on Geekzone:

Nice! I will test it out when I am at work. I thought I set up IPv6 here at home but for some reason the tunnel doesn't appear to be working at all. Maybe put a site indicator to show your browsing the site using IPv6 for testing?

The IPv6 connectivity to outside won't be working until next week. The IP address show is not* the Geekzone server, but another server I have in the same subnet (hence no problems connecting).

Good idea about the IPv6 indicator...
