IPv4 = 4,294,967,296 IP addresses

If you work in an IT dept then you really should have a forward plan, if you haven't then you are not doing your job!!!

0 on 10 for me too for ipv6. But, as far as I know, my ISP has taken steps for us, customers, to be able to reach such websites. Like, they set up bridges (ipv4 -> ipv6)

Videotron and IPv6

But yeah, it's still prelimary since only their routers can connect to the Internet with a ipv6 address. All cable modems they give us are all ipv4. So, I guess that they will have to change them for us when time comes...

I think he's saying that he won't switch to ipv6 for local network and... I understand why.

Oh, IPv4 will be around on local networks for many years to come; but for a company to not prepare is incompetence by the IT dept.

Actually, the real problem is that I work for a School District. We can scarcely afford competence, let ALONE forward thinking! ;P
