World IPv6 Day: firing up the engines on the new Internet protocol

Somewhat old news this, but I hadn't seen anybody else mention it, so I thought I would.

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/world-ipv6-day-firing-up-engines-on-new.html

Today, Google and major websites are joining the Internet Society to announce World IPv6 Day, a 24-hour
test flight of the next generation Internet protocol on June 8, 2011.

The story begins in 1977, when Vint Cerf, the program manager for the ARPA Internet research project (and
now one of the driving forces behind Google’s IPv6 efforts), chose a 32-bit address format for an
experiment in packet network interconnection. Who would have thought that the experiment would evolve
into today’s Internet: a global network connecting billions of people, some using handheld devices
faster than the mainframes of the 1970s?

For more than 30 years, 32-bit addresses have served us well, but now the Internet is running out of space.
IPv6 is the only long-term solution, but as the chart below shows, it has not yet been widely deployed. With
IPv4 addresses expected to run out in 2011, only 0.2% of Internet users have native IPv6 connectivity:

Google has been supporting IPv6 since early 2008, when we first began offering search over IPv6. Since then
we’ve brought IPv6 support to YouTube and have been helping ISPs enable Google over IPv6 by default for
their users.

On World IPv6 Day, we’ll be taking the next big step. Together with major web companies such as Facebook
and Yahoo!, we will enable IPv6 on our main websites for 24 hours. This is a crucial phase in the transition,
because while IPv6 is widely deployed in many networks, it’s never been used at such a large scale
before. We hope that by working together with a common focus, we can help the industry prepare for the new
protocol, find and resolve any unexpected issues, and pave the way for global deployment.

The good news is that Internet users don’t need to do anything special to prepare for World IPv6 Day. Our
current measurements suggest that the vast majority (99.95%) of users will be unaffected. However, in
rare cases, users may experience connectivity problems, often due to misconfigured or misbehaving home

Whois Broken?

Hi, 

We are seeing whois.coza.net.za issues. 

No response at all, but the co.za web interface is working. 

Anybody else seeing this issue? 

rsaweb <at> fe1:~$ whois -h whois.coza.net.za rsaweb.co.za 
rsaweb <at> fe1:~$ 

Whois from this machine is definitely working, already tested to other servers.

Yes, same issue.

Accepts TCP connection over IPv4, receives request, closes connection.

Interestingly, while it has an AAAA record, and responds to ping on IPv6, it 
refuses WHOIS connections over IPv6...

Re: Whois Broken?

Works for me...

mje <at> mje99 ~ $ whois -h 2001:43f8:30::172 rsaweb.co.za
Registered
%referral url:http://www.coza.net.za/cgi-bin/whois.sh?Domain=rsaweb

Now I know my IPv6 connectivity to UniForum works.

I'm very curious for those that have IPv6 connectivity - is the CO.ZA
system completely visible on IPv6?

This is going to become more topical as the last few blocks of IPv4
address space are given out to the RIR's.

I had this last night replying to a different major mail server from gmail.

This morning whois.coza.net.za is accepting IPv6 whois connections from me, and 
unlike yesterday actually returning results again (on both).

it was broken yesterday for a while - persistent database connection was
not brought up correctly - apologies for the inconvenience.
