UK IPv6 Council meeting today.


[link to this post]
 
Agenda.

Sky, BT, EE, Virgin, and the BBC will be giving updates about their progress.

Unfortunately i don't think they record the talks but presentation slides are usually made available on the council site afterwards.

Presumably TalkTalk submitted a written question asking what IPv6 is.

The slides are quite interesting - though difficult to understand.

I see this web site gets a mention on the Sky slides.

I do now wonder if you risk any IPv6 compatibility issues if you use your own router.

8800nl in bridge mode for modem and monitoring stats to mydslwebstats.
3 port amd 64 12v firewall/router

Pfsense is free. Will work on any modern pc just about provided you have 2 nics. Great to be able to test first. I bought specific hardware due to wanting low power small device


Ready built- just need to configure correctly
