How important is this? Yes, I understand that. As to "important" I don't know, probably not. My motivation is something like: "ripe gave me two pieces of equipment it's my job to keep it running and provide it the best environment I can." The web interface indicated that the probe might be able to resolve over IPv6 so I started looking into how to provide the resolver. Teh googles seems to indicate that dhcpv6 is the way to go. Apparently one can also transport resolver information in router advertisements. I'm a static address configuration server guy so I have no idea what I'm talking about here ;) Anyway, before spending an hour or so to get dhcphv6 to work I asked first to find out if this has even a chance to work. On the other hand I'm personally very interested in running a v6 only network. It turns out it's a bit more complicated then just publishing AAAA records ;) That's why I'm always looking if some new piece of equipment or software can work in my v6 only network. However it's probably more useful to not artificially cut the probe of from the v4 internet. > > Daniel > Thanks, Florian -- I remember yesterday, but the memory is in my head now. Was yesterday real? Or is it only the memory that is real?
