Some facts from the Ripe NNC Germany Country Report

- Daimer (a car manufacturer) holds 16,777,216 IPv4 addresses that were not provided by the RIPE NNC O_o

- 86 % of 1&1 - Versatel customers have IPv6 available (top rate).

- Only 70 % of Telekom (biggest provider in Germany) customers are capable of using IPv6

- All in all, abut 41 % of internet users in Germany are capable of using IPv6 based connections.

=> Supporters

"...They don’t endorse anything on this page, but they love the internet."

WTF. So all your supporters are not really supporters. Wow.


Fail2ban 0.10 unterstützt IPv6

Hab das damals gar nicht mitbekommen. Man kann sich 0.10 aus den Debian backportsziehen ... oder noch auf das neue Debian 10 warten ;-) Das kommt ja auch im Juli.

Der @nuron hat nun privat und am Server auch .

Ich bin stolz auf ihn! 😜

I hate legacy technology, which stops diffusion of supreme, newer technology. I really, really can't stand it.

"Will IPv6 die out? Willthe world converge on IPv6? Or will we live in a mixed world for the foreseeable future? Although wecannot be 100% certain, the most likely scenario is that we are looking at a mixed world for the next 20years." - *pain* *dies*

Hey Linux sysadmins, I have another blog post for you 🙂

LXD: Prefer IPv6 addresses for outgoing connections

It took me some time to find the cause, but I'm even happier now!

Beim Hoster "ungleich" aus der Schweiz haben sie echt einen Hass auf IPv4 :D

Ja. v4. Nicht v6.

Ich wäre ja auch gerne schon in einer v6-only Welt. Weil der alte Kram sich einfach schmutzig anfühlt und Dualstack noch schmutziger.

*starts Yggdrasil Mesh Network*

*IPv6 connectivity goes down*


That's not the case on my other two machines. Hm. :think_bread:


End-to-end encrypted IPv6 networking to connect worlds

"Yggdrasil is an early-stage implementation of a fully end-to-end encrypted IPv6 network. It is lightweight, self-arranging, supported on multiple platforms and allows pretty much any IPv6-capable application to communicate securely with other Yggdrasil nodes."

by @neilalexander

Suggestion: Introduce a "IPv6 awareness day" and turn off IPv4 globally for 24 hours. No excuses, no exceptions. No IPv6? No chance.

Life would be easier if we wouldn't have to manage two parallel IP networks (of which one is determined to be insufficient very soon) for even more decades. All this migration / intermediate technology. So PITA.

I really hate outdated, rotten technology that puts so much legacy on you. Throw away those scruffy v4 only appliances of the past century.
