As time progresses, AFRINIC might hit their Z day sooner.
AFRINIC has a webpage of their own on the IPv4 exhaustion within AFRINIC.
Sometime ago I switched from a Huawei E220 to a Huawei B593s-22. My 3G internet connection became a 4G internet connection in an instant.
I recently turned on IPv6 on the 4G WAN interface, only to be really disappointed.
NetCom does not offer IPv6 service to its 4G customers. That’s a shame.
With ARIN running out of IPv4 addresses, it sends a clear message that IPv4 is nearing its useful lifespan. NetCom should thus begin offering IPv6 service. Our patience is running out.
ARIN, the American Registry for Internet Numbers, is closing in on their Z day. Soon only AfriNIC will have IPv4 address blocks available for their customers, and even AfriNIC will run out of IPv4 addresses sometime in the year 2019.
See ARIN’s IPv4 depletion webpage for more information.
The bottom line is: Start using IPv6!
I had a FreeBSD setup I wanted to replicate to another, identical computer. The source system runs ZFS and so should the receiving system. A recursive snapshot in combination with the
zfs send and
zfs receive commands proved most fruitful. Continue reading Replicating an entire FreeBSD system using ZFS
Today at work, we received an ATEN/ALTUSEN KN2132 KVM switch. Unlike our previous KVM switch, this model has IPv6 capability.
Sadly, version 1.8.174 of the firmware contains an annoying bug. If you want to use SLAAC, then the firmware neglects to invert the universal/local bit while transforming the MAC-48 address to a modified EUI-64 format interface identifier. Continue reading ATEN/ALTUSEN KN2132 and SLAAC
I tried FreeBSD base/head with only an IPv6 address configured on the NIC. While installing some ports, I soon ran into the problem of living in more or less total isolation. Continue reading FreeBSD and IPv6 only – February 2014
After long hours of googling at work and at home, I finally arrived at http://www.excaliburtech.net/archives/192, stating this is the way to disable IPv6 autoconfiguration, say when you’re more keen on using a manually configured IPv6 address:
netsh interface ipv6 set interface "Local Area Connection" routerdiscovery=disabled
