IPv6

PostPosted by JH2k » Wed Jan 27, 2010 6:47 pm

Again, I don't know how many times I heard this in several years, ICAAN urged to update domains to IPv6 before 2012.

The official stack preview from Microsoft is here, but only available for Windows 2000 SP1 (not earlier, nor later).

Here I found the stack for Windows 2000 SP4 with tiny updates.

The question here is, the IPv6 stack available for 2000... would be enough? Have you tested it?

Or, would this be the time to swith to other OS?

I tested it about one year ago (my ISP is providing an option to select between IPv6 and IPv4). I tried simple connections with friends (running either Ubuntu or WinXP) having IPv6, pings in IPv6, network software IPv6-compatible, etc. We also tried 6to4. I remember that everything was working fine (IPv6 stack for Windows 2000 SP4), we did not see any problem. The main issue was managing to find simple network software ready for IPv6.

Thank you for tell your experience :)

But for browsing? Was that good too?

I think that any browser now can manage IPv6, I hope I'm not wrong.

I know that few domains have implemented the AAAA registry but that is what would interesting in the upcoming years :) because for LANs maybe we could use an adapter with IPv4 config.

I read at wikipedia that the patch for win2k is limited and only the "ping" command functions.
Theres a download for XP: Advanced Networking Pack for Windows XP.
We could try to patch this to run on 2k

Wikipedia is quite weak in information about this topic. Don't believe anything.

What interests me is if it works like the IPCv6 update for XP. So if it's usable and full functional.

If you have time you could make a zip file and guide that contains the update. Or even a selve extracting setup for that that automatically set up all settings . ;)
