6 June 2012 is World IPv6 Launch, what will be done differently from 2011 ?

Big names are backing this day including ISPs, CDNs and Content Providers:

Certainly the glitches I saw looked more like server configuration issues (i.e. stuff that could be just as likely on a v4 only host) than any IPv6 or 4/6 client side problems.
Comment by Harold Hartley on June 8, 2011 at 8:12pm

I did try some of the web sites during the WorldIPv6 day and found that some sites were IPv6, but the links ended up as IPv4 sites.

One site was www.yahoo.com was ipv6 and I checked the links and they all led to ipv4 pages on the yahoo server, so I feel they did not do as much work on their web site as they should of done. I would of at least had all the links to a ipv6 pages and not a ipv4.

There are lots of site which I find are very well done which were all IPv6 pages at the web site, but not all.

I do hope those web sites do much more work on the websites if they want to be able to show all ipv6 pages and not just the main page of the website.

I can't get to the site from Freenet6 either. Looks like their network isn't reachable.

Today after a while ,some people in iran with native IPv6 had experience in surfing the websites such as facebook,youtube,bbc,twitter.. etc without any VPN Connection like before


Comment by Mike Mestnik on June 8, 2011 at 2:50pm

Found several sites that I can't reach.  Later is a trace-path to one of them.  From the TP you can see that I'm connected to HE.net's Chicago broker, using 6in4 tunnel from St. Paul, MN.

cheako@arcadia:~$ tracepath6 www.tellabs.com
 1?: [LOCALHOST]                        0.050ms pmtu 1472
 1:  purgatorycondo.mikemestnik.net                        1.418ms
 1:  purgatorycondo.mikemestnik.net                        1.007ms
 2:  cheako-1.tunnel.tserv9.chi1.ipv6.he.net              95.883ms
 3:  gige-g3-4.core1.chi1.he.net                          96.995ms
 4:  10gigabitethernet7-2.core1.nyc4.he.net              111.548ms
 5:  2001:504:f::64                                      111.828ms asymm  6
 6:  no reply


What should I do with this list?  This is likely a problem with 2001:504:f::64 and not the site: 2620:29:8000:1661::80


I'd imagine the others have similar problems.

Seems traffic is picking up slowly, more than double the traffic compared to yesterday at this time now. Perhaps there is a delay due to DNS caching?
Comment by Mikael Lind on June 8, 2011 at 8:29am

Some nice statistics from Akamai:


Seeing much less increase in traffic on Freenet6 than I expected. I guess most people here use Google for everything and that is always IPv6.

Comment by Simone on June 8, 2011 at 5:07am

We (Fastweb - Italy) deployed our own Gogoserver to provide IPv6 connectivity for Business and Residential customers and everything

is working fine

If you are one of our customers please visit www.ipv6.fastweb.it or simply

change the server address to tsp.ipv6.fastweb.it

In case of problem drop an email to ipv6@fastweb.it

Thank you Gogo6 :)


Comment by Rommel Laranjo on June 8, 2011 at 4:57am

everything is fine here at my end of the tunnel. im running gogo6 client and is behind 3 NATs ... yes 3 NATs but tunnel is working fine. kame is dancing, google is not translated to filipino/tagalog (ironically this is what i want for google to give me the english page), facebook access is fine.
