    Lightbulb v4 IP Addresses Is Running Out

    v4 IP Addresses as we know it will be running out in less than 2 years time. Have you guys started to play around with IPv6 on your servers?

    Just found out about this on http://ipv6.he.net/statistics/

    At least getting to know how to use it, etc.

    Good luck playing with it

    This is old news to be honest, IPv4 will go and IPv6 will come, there is nothing that will change that, although has anyone seem the new IP addresses?

    IPv4: 191.192.193.194
    IPv6: 3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67c



    Not sure what to put here :-P

    I guess with an IP looking like that we will never run out...

    When I first started reading about IPv6 a few years back someone wrote that there would be an IP address for every grain of sand on the earth. Haven't counted all the grains yet so can't verify that

    jesus why does it have to be so complicated. It will take me a century to even connect to my servers if I have to use ipv6

    Yes (we use IPv6 extensively within our network). It's not as big a problem as you might think as long as you put some planning into it (and of course, use AAAA records).

    Let's take your sample address '3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67c' (which is actually 6BONE, an IPv6 testbed which has been shutdown).

    If you don't need that many unique identifiers you can actually zero them out. For example, let's say I have this address:

    2405:5000:0002:0121:0000:0000:0000:0001

    Because I didn't need a lot of unique identifiers, I've used zeros. This then allows me to shrink that address down to 2405:5000:2:121::1 which is much more palatable.

    That address is made up of:

    2405:5000 - our IPv6 allocation (2405:5000::/32), ie: every address starting with that is ours.
    :2:121 - customer identifier (ie: every address starting with 2405:5000:2:121 is a specific customer).
    ::1 - the individual node.

    It's made up of HEX, so in that same range you could also have (for example): 2405:5000:2:121::beef:cafe - that address is real.

    So, my point is - IPv6 really isn't that hard once you get used to it. We've had IPv6 live on our network (BGP native, no tunnels), since Feb 2008 and it's a piece of cake.

    I see what your saying, although knowing how fast IP's go, all the good numbers will be taken quickly.

    Although I am looking into switching to this soon, and it's a tad confusing since I've never really got into that sorta thing =P

    Funny thing too. Took some Cisco classes last year and according to them they are not concerned with IPV6 and instead tell us subnetting is the answer.

    32bit addressing schema gives us about 4 billion addreses. IPv6 is 128 bit so we should be good.

    Well I think I can safely tell you, no one is ever going to remember there IPv6 address.

    not entirely true... there are the few people, who will remember their IPv6. After typing it 10 times, i will most likely know it. And i'm sure theres others who will know it soon or later as well.

    I have eidetic memory with numbers. Type it once and it's stuck in my head.

    although I am limited to about 20 numerals for total recall.

    Hmmm I wonder if there was a computing concept that allowed a user to copy and paste information thus negating the need to remember long or complicated text strings.

    Yeah, it was supposed to run out in '99 too. There is no spoon.

    mugo is correct. Every year IPv4 will run out next year...this has been going on for many years now.

    And I'll never be able to memorize another IP as long as I live. Why couldn't they just make the IPv6 191.192.193.194.195.196, lol
