Experimental NAT64/DNS64 Service
Experimental NAT64/DNS64 Service
Raimundas Tuminauskas — 01 Jun 2011

The Lithuanian research and education network LITNET has introduced the NAT64/DNS64 service at the TERENA Networking Conference (TNC2010) last year, and it has been running ever since. The main feature of NAT64/DNS64 is that it can not only be used as a usual NAT, but as a meeting point between two networks. The service is open to anyone wishing to try an IPv6-only setup (subject to the compliance with our acceptable use policy).

When Does World IPv6 Day Start?
When Does World IPv6 Day Start?
Emile Aben — 31 May 2011

World IPv6 Day is on 8 June 2011. On this day, a lot of organisations, including some of the most popular ones like Google, Yahoo and Facebook, are going to provide IPv6 addresses for AAAA queries for their websites. This will make content available over IPv6 for one full day. Since DNS responses are often cached, some users won't see this change immediately. In this article we look at how DNS caching affects the start of World IPv6 Day, and how World IPv6 Day participants can minimise these effects.

World IPv6 Day - IPv6 Eye Chart
World IPv6 Day - IPv6 Eye Chart
Emile Aben — 27 May 2011

The RIPE NCC is doing some measurements for World IPv6 Day. One of them is the IPv6 eye chart, a web page that allows you to test your connectivity to selected dual-stacked web sites and World IPv6 participants. The goal is to see if an end user has connectivity problems to dual-stacked websites. This is an increasingly rare problem, but still perceived important enough to prohibit content providers to go dual-stack.
