Today is World IPv6 Day, organised by the Internet Society (ISOC). Internet Society - World IPv6 Day.
Read the "About IPv6" section of the Irish IPv6 Task Force website if this means nothing to you :-)
Many people are experimenting with turning on IPv6 for the first time, and/or turning off IPv4 to see if the IPv6 infrastructure can cope.
So today is a good day to test your own machine to see how well it can cope with the next generation internet protocol, IPv6: http://www.testipv6.com.
In Ireland there is a good IPv6 readiness site, http://www.ipv6ready.ie, sponsored by the INEX, the Dublin Internet Neutral Exchange.
The Irish IPv6 Task Force has also a website for the day, http://www.ipv6day.ie, the site includes a monitoring tooolset that monitors IPv6 readiness for high profile public and private sector Irish internet sites.Tweet Posted by mofoghlu at June 8, 2011 10:06 AM | TrackBack
