Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere else.

Anyone know if Orcon are doing IPv6 allocations for residential yet?
I understand they do for business customers on request.

Keen to jump on the bandwagon and have a play.


Cheers

They do it for some business customers on request but its a very manual process it seems. I would almost guarantee no. Ask for a /20 IPv4 and see what they say :P

Residential users are coming from a somewhat dynamic pool, so adding in a IPv6 pool for a select group who understand what they're getting in for shouldn't be hard, however that is just the theory.....as we know networking practice is a different story

Wait to see if sounddude posts on this topic, he is a bit more knowledgeable in such things than I :-)

Working on it :-)

We have IPV6 firmware for our Genius modems, which we are keen to rollout.

We are currently testing it with UFB and EUBA. However our LLU network requires a software rollout to support ipv6 PPPoA -> PPPoE translation.

Are you on UFB or EUBA by chance? :-)

Hi Sounddude.
I'm on UFB.  I don't currently use the Genius modem but the Juniper SRX I am using supports IPv6.
I would definitely use the Genius modem if I could get IPv6 addresses allocated.

Definitely keen to be a tester!

UFB ipv6 using Chorus is an interesting thing.

They have decided early on not to support ipv6 DHCP Option 82, so we cant support ipv6 using Chorus yet. We are working with their product teams to get this supported.

We have it working in our lab environment but it won't work in production.

The other LFC's (Enable and UFF) apparently do support it, not sure about North Power. We haven't tested with these guys yet but plan to soon.

That seems very short sighted of them

Sorry for dragging up an old thread.  Did you have any luck here Sounddude?

Any news about Chorus support? I assume there will be no rollouts until Chrous support DHCP Option 82?

I'm on UFF fibre with Orcon, I'm technically minded and I'd love to be a guinea pig for IPv6.
