Dear All, I did not see any answers except one from Bill Manning - who was supporting the 4. options. So this means this is the accepted and RIPE reccomended method. Basically allow allocating portable IPv6 address: * root domain name system (DNS) server; * global top level domain (gTLD) nameservers; * country code TLD (ccTLDs) nameservers; When the RIPE policy will reflect this changes?
