I've been waiting literally for years for an NBN connection so I can finally have full IPv6 at home, and now I'm just 3 days away from connection and my future ISP has just suspended their IPv6 beta program due to Cisco bugs.
@mike lol, I got that email as well. THANKS CISCO.
@virtualwolf I had such plans for how I was finally going to rearrange my infrastructure and bring some services back home. Well, I'm sure it won't delay things by more than a decade.
It's understandable ... it's not like IPv6 has been around for 20 years or anything, right?
@mike Nah, it's definitely a pretty recent thing! Gotta give it time to get the kinks worked out. /s
I was playing around with IPv6 but I don't entirely understand it, and am not really keen on having all of my internet network exposed directly to the internet, heh.
That's funny. Not long after I changed ISP's here in Singapore because the old one did such a bad job with IPv6, the new one did exactly the same thing as you experienced, they suspended it because a firmware upgrade caused issues.
In my case I argued that the only reason I changed to them was because of their superior IPv6 support, so they configured it manually for me.
@mike Picard facepalm
@mike Ouch! Which ISP?
@jchelp Aussie Broadband. Not really holding it against them, it's just a bit frustrating that I'm so close to having the capacity to host some things at home, after years of getting dates pushed back.
@mike Yikes. I'm with Exetel and we've had IPv6 for a while now.
@mike Sympathies. I moved to Internode back in 2010 because they were one of the few ISPs that offered IPv6 and I wanted to hone my skills. Coming up on my nine-years-on-IPv6 anniversary this month!
@futzle yeah I've used Internode when possible but at my current address Optus cable was literally the only option. Felt like a huge step backwards.
Also, had some terrible experiences with Internode lately. TPG has destroyed them. Hardly anyone competent left there. RIP.
First place on nbn, hey, good experiences. Added a second place, specified it was a second place, they kept disconnecting my primary and charging for break of contract. Took a good 3-4 months to sort out and many irate phonecalls. I ended up having to split the accounts so they'd get it right, and they still stuffed it up.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
