IPv6 is on my mind and we have been busy in the background getting ready for the big day. You will have noticed the countdown timer on the bottom right of this blog. Time is marching on.
This last week we have been working on our IPv6 DNS capability. DNS is one of the first steps on the road to IPv6 deployment. It’s all very well having all your routers enabled but if noone can surf to a website, or send emails (to that fridge) then it’s no good is it?
For those of you that know these things:
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;cachev6.dns.as8607.net. IN AAAA
;; ANSWER SECTION:
cachev6.dns.as8607.net. 86400 IN AAAA 2001:40a0:5:53::10
PS if you really need to ask about the fridge then leave a comment or email me at tref at trefor dot net :-). Don’t be embarassed now. I could just have easily have said light bulb 🙂

Seems to be running Debian Lenny 🙂 Next step – firewall. Good luck on your deployment!
Thanks Chaz6. I posted a couple of hours prematurely so firewall is up now:-)
