IPv6 move could cause network problems, threaten cybersecurity

Quote:
The move to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) could have a profound affect on the Internet, breaking it up into islands of connectivity and threatening cybersecurity in the process, according to Jeff Young, a senior analyst at the Burton Group.

As the IPv4 free address pool continues to dwindle, enterprises can expect to see IPv6-only hosts on the Internet within a three-year timeframe, Young said. In the report, "IPv4 Address Exhaustion: An Inconvenient Truth," Young addresses the incompatibility of IPv4 and IPv6 and some of the problems that need to be addressed during the changeover.

No, you don't really need IPv6 as of yet. You need IPv4 though.

So can we assume that the endless errors created by this service once very 7 minutes are a result of having routers that aren't able to accomidate this service? Maybe some new firmware will fix this error?

Because those errors are a pain and I would like to know how to fix the problem rather than just shutting the service off.

yeah the only way is to disable it AFAIK....

the only side-effect that really affects the enduser is that you break homegroups
