Woah that's a huge roundtrip for a Datacentre:

yeah, it's peering via HE, waiting for citylink to answer their ipv6 peering request via APE. Also waiting for connectivity to vocus so we can get better connectivity via v6 rather than hopping over to the USA. Just in test phase in the DC still.

It is great to be able to offer this to the community; and to finally push some IPv6 traffic through our v6 Peering that has been sitting idle for too long.

Can't wait to see Geekzone go Quad-A!

Hey all, I sent an email enquiry to Xnet (world xchange) about IPv6 and this is the response:

Hi Stephen,

WorldxChange is currently running a closed trial with Native IPv6
(dual-stacked) over xDSL.

To register for the trial, you will need an xnet ADSL account, a router
that can support IP6CP and DHCPv6. At this stage we will be limiting
numbers on the trial mainly due to the manual nature of the
configuration required on our end. There will also be no support from
the helpdesk for those on the trial - however - we do have a forum setup
which you could post in and maybe get a helpful response.

Note - this is a native IPv6 service, NOT tunneled, so no, your free
ADSL modem wont work, even though it has a little checkbox saying IPv6.

Please note that WorldxChange reserve the right to cancel the trial at
any time, and due to the nature of it being a trial, it may not work all
the time!

As I said before I'd lock this discussion when Geekzone IPv6 landed... So here it is, more information!

Who will be the first to post from an IPv6 address?
