World IPv6 Day wrap-up

Andrew Daviel, June 2011

WORLD IPV6 DAY was 8 June 2011 -- The Future is Forever test your IPv6/IPv4 connectivity


TRIUMF took part in world IPv6 day (June 8 2011), in so far as the TRIUMF website www.triumf.ca was dual-stacked using a tunnel from Hurricane Electric (it had both an A and AAAA DNS record), and we monitored 6to4 tunnel traffic at the router.
We did not have a native IPv6 connection, or advertise IPv6 routes. However, the anycast address 192.88.99.1 was not blocked, and organizations upstream (probably Ottix) advertise a route to it, so that some Windows Vista/7 machines onsite automatically created a 6to4 tunnel.

No-one at TRIUMF reported any problems.

IPv6-enabled partner websites

Several universities were IPv6 enabled with help from BCnet (These may no longer be accessible over IPv6)

6to4 tunnel traffic at TRIUMF router - most of that is probably myself, using a tunnel on my desktop.

SIXXS and Hurricane Electric are explicit tunnels. V6-6TO4 is often an automatic tunnel on Windows Vista. Others are native connections. See e.g. here
