...I suspect everything is in hand and the changeover will go ahead un-noticed by anyone using this site.

Cheeky! :)

BFN,

There are a few changes we need to make in terms of logging IP's. Otherwise it is out of our hands and is handled by the data centre.

What data centre are you referring to?

Trial is tomorrow.

Test your connection here.

The data centre where the servers are which serve the web pages.

Well don't give too much away.
Is it a big secret where the data centre is and who mans it?

How is the test being run? Are end users mean to be given an IPv6 address?

I don't have one but it says I shouldn't encounter any problems when it does roll out.

Hi Ya.
How you doing?

I have no idea, I don't pretend to understand it all.
I know my home network computers won't talk to each other at the moment and I haven't had the time lately to get it sorted.

I think it more of a problem for some web sites rather than browsers.

All is good, can't say I've seen you about much though. The girls must be keeping you busy.

Yeah wasn't sure about the browser thing myself, not the brightest when it comes to IP distribution but when learning about the OSI model I can't remember browsers coming into it.

Saying that, I forget so much. Need to start reading again.

LOL, just checked it online and browsers come under the application layer, silly me.

HUKD and any users won't need to do anything, IPV6 isn't going to become necessary for about another 10 years but they are advertising it now so websites owners (and data centres) can make the change ready for the change over.

You will find over the next 2-3 years ISP's will start offering IPV6 on their broadband alongside IPV4 and data centres (where the actual servers for websites are hosted) will start the change over once their internet suppliers start offering the service.

HUKD website is hosted by these guys, and the servers are based in London.

@jumpingphil - It's at ControlCircle as posted on the thread here. I didn't think it was a secret as it shows on any IP check :)

Everything I have read suggests it will run out in November THIS year.
Where are you getting your figures from?

Phil, you must be talking about the last block of IPV4 addresses were recently used up, but that block could last up to 10 years.

Various sources are saying we won't need to change our Hardware / software for another 4-10 years depending on who wrote the article. Most people are ready for IPV6 as windows OS's xp and up have IPV6 compatibility, the only thing holding it back is the isp's.

Basically you won't need to do anything for at least 3 years and upto 10 years, as no one knows exactly how many IPV4 addresses are left, and you're basically ready for the change so when it happens, you will be ready.

Well, I don't profess to be an expert, but this site suggests they are going to run out this year.
