Resident IPv6 Proponent
The latest DailyServerDeals offer looked kinda nice so I picked up a 256MB VPS from WSWD. Before I did, I noticed that the IPv4 test IP was with Incero, which as we all know doesn't have IPv6. I checked the website, and apparently the v6 addresses mentioned in the offer are tunnelled. No problem - the Hurricane Electric Dallas endpoint is >1ms from Incero. When I got the VPS, however, it didn't come with any IPv6 addresses. I ticketed for some and got them, but the ticket said more than "here are your v6". Here's what Bryan Wollenberg, owner of WSWD, said:
Now, admittedly most people have heard at one time or another that such and such a company will be getting IPv6 "soon", or even "in a few weeks", but this seems pretty imminent, and I was surprised to see that the Incero AS has IPv6 allocations and peering. Very curious to see how this works out.Hi D. Strout,
As of right now, the IPv6's on that server (datacenter) are tunneled through Hurricane Electric. After a very long wait, we are supposed to be getting native IPv6's by the end of the week.
I have allocated the IPs, but just so you know, they will be changing hopefully by the end of the week, when we get our non-tunneled allocation.
