Re: IPv6 support on Virgin media

And long may it remain on the back burner.

I want IPv6, but not what VM was proposing to deliver. I currently have an IPv6 HE tunnel that provides exactly what I need and the nearest to a dual stack that I think I will ever get.

VM please use the time you have, to reconsider the stupid DS-Lite proposal. We were constantly told you have plenty of IPv4 capacity. So why throw it away. (Or sell it)

Re: IPv6 support on Virgin media

CGNAT is going to come whether you like it or not. At least with DS-lite you can still receive inbound connections.

Google's v6 stats tend to be flat for the first 4 or so months of the year, for whatever reason. Perhaps we'll see something happening soon.

Slightly off topic I know but in praise of IPv6  .......

I now have 2 Xboxes running at home, both with Open NAT courtesy of BT's IPv6 ........  No messing with IPv4 port forwarding etc. etc. 

One advantage of having BT and VM (for work connection redundancy btw) circuits.

Morgaine has probably retired now and moved away to a island somewhere in Asia.  I know the intention was to wait it out for IPv6 deployment, but sometimes we grow old before things happen Smiley Tongue....

Looking on APNIC labs, I would say nothing has moved forward for users.  I could be looking at it wrong I guess.

But the world keeps spinning with IPv4.

Re: IPv6 support on Virgin media

Something's happening though I don't know what it means. Seems like the number of VM ipv6 users has sagged from 22k to 15k over the last few weeks. Maybe it's a trial being rejigged?

There is a new firmware trial taking place.  It's possible (I am not part of either trial, IPv6, or the new one) that the new one is not a IPv6 enabled trial, as such anyone who joins that "might" be moved out of the IPv6 user pool.  If that is the case then that's a large setback as it would mean that the IPv6 changes are not going to be rolled out in the next batch of firmware updates.  People taking place in the new trial may let us know if it's not IPv6 enabled, but I would imagine VM would frown upon them telling us.
