About World IPv6 Day

On 8 June, 2011, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour "test flight". The goal of the Test Flight Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.
Please join us for this test drive and help accelerate the momentum of IPv6 deployment.

There is also a test to see how compatible your system is.
Mine appears to be okay for now, but I have some work to do.

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit SP1

My router seems to have limited support for IPV6 and my ISP has none (according to the test results.) I guess I'll get that support when it's needed though :)

My ISP has just announced that they are testing their equipment for a future deployment of IPv6 but they won't upgrade anytime soon as they still have hundreds of thousands of IPv4 addresses still free

About your IPv4-only internet service.

Thanks for the information and test link

The test, see below for results, confirmed what I had found out about a month ago by other means. Though the test did provide more information.

About your IPv4-only internet service.

This FAQ has been produced to try and address the questions of IPv4 only users
More about your test results.
It looks like you have only IPv4 internet service at this time. Don't feel bad - most people are in this position right now. Most internet service providers are not quite yet ready to provide IPv6 internet to residential customers.
The good news is, nothing will suddenly break. When web sites offer their content on both IPv4 and IPv6, you'll still reach them using your existing IPv4 internet service.
You also appear to have Teredo enabled. You did successfully connect to an IPv6 site during this test - but only when forcing the connection by connecting to an IPv6 numeric address, instead of a web site name. This setting will not help or hurt you going forward to reach IPv6 web sites.
Teredo (a tunneling protocol for Windows computers) advice will be posted hopefully soon.
Don't stress too much on having an IPv6 address in 2011. If you do buy a new router, make sure that it will be IPv6 ready (or upgradable) when your service provider does offer IPv6.

[go back]
I made a note to periodically run the test though I suspect that my ISP provider; AT&T in Los Angeles will notify me when they have IPv6 connectivity available and if I need a new router to access IPv6 or whether it will be done through a software update in the router.

I can't go to any IPv6 sites according to the test, I got 10/10 for IPv4 for 0/10 for IPv6.

If you could Joan then you would be able to come here as I prepared SF for IPv6 long ago
