Oh nice, the spammers who are creating accounts on metalhead.club, are using IPv6 enabled connections :-)

Wondered why Firefox with "SixOrNot" addon always showed v4 only connections to some of my own web sites. v6 connectivity was totally fine ... first thought this would somehow be tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8305 related, but then checked /etc/hosts ...

... and realized that I had configured v4 addresses for testing purposes a while ago. 😳


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." - internetgovernance.org/wp-cont *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."
