There are various IPv6 only services that provide a 6-to-4 gateway at their edge. This is how me and my flatmate intend to run our internal network once IPv6 routing is in place on his WaveLAN to 100BaseT gateway is in place.
IPv6 is about transition and seamless co-existance. If that story doesn’t get out soon, it’ll be harder for IPv6 transitions.
It’ll be a long time (10 years or more) before the old protocol will die (if ever). Whistler for example doesn’t support DLC, NetBEUI, or Appletalk. But I still see IPX and Appletalk today, so these protocols are anything but dead. IPv4 will take as long or longer to get rid of than these other “legacy” protocols.
I’m just glad I’m in a position to do my bit to make it happen in a modern first-world economy like Australia.
Installed Whistler Pro. Worked on auDA report and SAGE-AU sponsorship kit. Fun, fun, fun.
Bought Red Alert 2 Collector’s Edition. Awesome, cute little doco on the DVD. Titillating even. Bought Combat Flight Sim 2. Beautiful; the translucency and water effects are stunning. Win2K is the best games platform out there right now – all my games just work, and they work well. I can see a lot of hours going down the tubes, when coupled with Baldurs Gate II that I bought a few weeks ago and Flight Sim 2000 Professional that I bought earlier this year.
