Google's Lorenzo Colitti proposed the W6D idea back in November 2010 during RIPE 61 meeting. Here are his final slides recommendations


How can you help?

- Content providers
Deploy IPv6 and participate
Ask your CDN vendor to let you participate

- ISPs
Provide separate DNS servers for IPv6 users
Train user support
Replace broken user CPEs?
Deploy IPv6, including IPv6-capable CPEs

- OS vendors
Fix bugs
Depref 6to4
Probe for working IPv6, disable if it's not working
   Need to patch old systems as well!

- Home router vendors
Provide robust IPv6 support
Turn off 6to4!


From: http://ripe61.ripe.net/presentations/223-World_IPv6_day.pdf


Its worth noting that the gogoClient makes a good alternative to CPEs/home routers not ready with a public IPv6 connectivity or running 6to4.

In Taiwan, we have "Taiwan IPv6 Day" at the same time and we also ask ISPs to participant. Here is the web site http://ipv6day.tw/index.html but its mandrian only. :)

We have two events in Switzerland on June 8 and hope to get things going and moving a little bit. And obviously a dual-stacked website:


Have fun!

Laurentian University (Sudbury, Ontario, Canada) is ready for IPv6 day.  We have been coordinating with ARIN.  Our website is fully dual stacked.


Looking forward to June!

To prep for World IPv6 Day, we got our web site to be reachable over IPv6. Check out www.mudynamics.com! If you are on IPv6, this page will not say you're reaching us over IPv4. :-)


We provide a broad suite of test tools that are focused on application re-creation, IPv6 and security testing.

RIPE NCC (the European regional registry) has just published its action plan and measurements it intends to take on W6D. One of them is an interesting Connectivity Chart, see


Comment by Ahmed Abu-Abed on May 11, 2011 at 2:14am

DNS testing of both IPv6 and Dual-Stack, as well as general connectivity, is done well at

A few good resources on World IPv6 Day preparations and testing, add more as they come up.


How to participate in W6D, whether you run a website or an ISP:



Troubleshooting W6D connection issues:



Speed test both your IPv4 and IPv6 connections:



Test a websites reachability over IPv6 (this test doesn't need the user to be on v6):


Comment by Ahmed Abu-Abed on May 8, 2011 at 2:15am

World IPv6 Day, or W6D, is coming up on June 8th.


This group is for sharing experiences on preparations for it as well as observations once W6D is over.


My suggestion is to give out an IPv6 access client to as many people as possible and ask them to access popular sites like Youtube and Facebook on that day.
