from the not-yet dept.

APNIC reminds us that "there are now a large number of ISPs, data centres, cloud services, and software that now support IPv6" and "enabling IPv6 can be as simple as clicking a button on your WiFi router."

I turned it on, with Comcast I received an IPv6 route but no DNS server. Fortunately, Google Public DNS has unmemorable addresses, which I was able to configure manually.


It works. "There's only one thing left for you to do: Turn it on!"

[ ed: What are the alternatives to Google's Public DNS? ]

    > "Too new"? I've been using it for over 15 years!

    You are correct. Technically correct which is the best kind of correct.
    It lets you ignore the point in favor of a literal misunderstanding. Congratulations on your aspergers!

    > I don't really care if the world can derive my MAC address from my v6 address

    That is only the babiest of baby steps. That you think MAC address tracking is the be all and end all of the privacy risks that ipv6 brings with it, then ipv6 really is new to you. []
