Topic # 63529 29-Jun-2010 10:20
Send private message

Earlier today I was informed by ICONZ that our IPv6 addresses have been added to their firewall and routing configuration.

I have now added DNS information that allow users to visit Geekzone through an IPv6 connection. We decided to keep it simple and continue to use the current www.geekzone.co.nz URL for both IPv4 and IPv6 connections.

If you visit Geekzone through an IPv6 connection (native or tunnel) then you should see this logo:



If you want to make sure your connection can "see" our server, visit http://ipv6.geekzone.co.nz/ and the default page will show your IPv6 address. The ipv6.geekzone.co.nz test server does not accept connections from IPv4 addresses and it's only a test page.

Also worth mentioning we will not be running ads on Geekzone IPv6 pages, for at least the first couple of months. This will allow us to track speed, page load performance, etc.

The first 50 people to post from an IPv6 address go into the draw to win... something (will decide later on a nice prize for you folks).

Also note, this is probably one of the first New Zealand sites in the top online properties to go IPv6.

If you can't see images just look at the source for any page - near the bottom you should see your IP address and a message if it's IPv4 or IPv6.

Yes.. it works fine on IPv6 :-)


Page created in 98 ms @ 2010-6-29 11:01:21 just for you at 2001:388:f000::77 This is an IPv6 address



If you can see the turtle moving then you have IPv6

Thanks... It seems when I made Geekzone IPv6 'ad free' I also made it 'TinyMCE' free. Will change this soon.

freitasm: I have now enabled the rich-text editor for non-mobile IPv6 connections again.



Awesome, I don't need to write in HTML now :P
Btw, this is my 2nd post in IPv6 Userland.

Another thing is the logo, somebody should redesign the IPv6 Logo since the transparency is a bit screwed up on it.
A Transparent PNG logo is nice :) Would also encourage users of that dreaded IE6 to change.
