Why do YOU use ipv6?

Postby Garion » Fri Aug 15, 2003 8:13 pm

We have a few ipv6 servers, and some people using ipv6. I was wondering for what reason(s) people use ipv6 to connect to irc.

So, if you use ipv6 to connect to EFnet, or you would like to be able to, here's a simple question for you:

Why?

what do you mean "a few ipv6 servers"? to the best of my knowledge irc.ipv6.homelien.no is the only working ipv6 server on efnet. and its frequently down.

is there some secret list of ipv6 servers that is being hidden from the public? i demand access to that list!!

qeast and aloha used to accept ipv6, as did another EU server, which escapes me.

now it's only homelien.

Eh, not quite. irc.efnet.nl and efnet.xs4all.nl do ipv6 as well, though at the moment they're not accepting I:line requests. See also the http://www.efnet.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=38 thread in the ideas/suggestions section.

Also note that the poll question states "or you would like to be able to".

ipv6 is the gateway to abuse
we won`t see many /strong/ servers with ipv6 support right away

once the fight for Foonet is over, then maybe we can start talking about ipv6 :)

I think the question is though, how does FooNet relate to this IPv6 server topic? :?:

irc.efnet.nl
efnet.ipv6.xs4all.nl
irc.ipv6.homelien.no

Someone should add, "I don't use IPv6 to the poll". :twisted:
