Our First Experiences of IPv6

Tuesday 31st May 2011 •
Billy Law-Bregan, Communications Officer

We have now begun the process of rolling out IPv6 to our corporate infrastructure, this involved configuring IPv6 on our Cisco ASA firewalls and allowing client devices to configure an IPv6 address.

We have allowed our clients to automatically setup IPv6 addresses using stateless-auto configuration for now while we look at the options available for DHCP. We also setup as Windows 2008 DNS server to support IPv6 AAAA DNS records in our corporate network as well as providing name resolution for web browsing. This allowed us to browse to our first IPv6 websites!

We’ve now been testing this for a few days and everything seems to be running smoothly.

If you are interested in IPv6 connectivity with Node4 please contact our support or sales teams for further details.
