EntaNet IPv6


[link to this post]
 
I see overnight EntaNet have completed some IPv6 changes:
"All #Entanet resolvers are now dual stacked and ready for IPv6 day"


Running TBB's IPv6 Readiness test www.thinkbroadband.com/ipv6/test-ipv6.html
I get these results:
7/10 for your IPv4 stability and readiness, when publishers offer both IPv4 and IPv6
0/10 for your IPv6 stability and readiness, when publishers are forced to go IPv6 only


Using www.test-ipv6.com directly which TBB have based their test page on, I get:
10/10 for your IPv4 stability and readiness, when publishers offer both IPv4 and IPv6
0/10 for your IPv6 stability and readiness, when publishers are forced to go IPv6 only


Not sure why the two sets of results are different.
I think these are the same results I used to get before EntaNet's changes?

Just trying to check whether it's something I need to change, so could some other EntaNet customers post their test results please? (This is people on a normal setup NOT direct IPv6).

Thanks.

Do you actually have an IPv6 allocation from Enta and is it configured on your router and on your PC?

No.

Perhaps I'm getting confused.
I was led to believe the changes EnatNet have made are to allow a seamless change for the introduction on IPv6 without any end user changes?

You have misunderstood.

Enta's announcement is regarding their own adoption of IPv6 at the network level.

For you to have access to IPv6 you still need an allocation and a router capable of using it.

No.

but when you do you get
10/10 for your IPv4 stability and readiness, when publishers offer both IPv4 and IPv6
10/10 for your IPv6 stability and readiness, when publishers are forced to go IPv6 only

Yes the EntaNet chap via Twitter said the same smile


All rather confusing/strange though as EntaNet have said months and months ago that they are all IPv6 ready but these changes were only made last night?!

I'm assuming that EntaNet have done everything they need to do to allow customers on normal routers etc. to reach 'all' websites for the foreseeable future - either IPv4 or IPv6 based ones!?

So if I was to move to entanet, why should I ask for to use IPv6

I'm not sure I understand your question.

But basically it's because all the IPv4 addresses are running out and the internet is moving to IPv6 ! smile

I don't mean to sound pendantic but it's actually available addresses which are running out.

There is still plenty of unused address space but the legacy holders are keeping a death grip on it. They won't give any of it up voluntary and so far, they're managed to block any and all attempts to force them to relinquish some of it.

As for the IPv6... Well... That's certainly the theory smile
