IPv6 at 150 kmph

Cool: IPv6 at 150 kmph ... in the train to Brussels. Thanks to KPN Mobile and my Nokia N97 combined with Teredo/Miredo on my Ubuntu. Result:

Vigor 2130 supports IPv6 via DHCPv6 and TSPC

Cool: the Vigor 2130 broadband router from Draytek supports IPv6. The WAN-IPv6-connection can be established via Static IPv6, DHCPv6 and TSPC. See included screendump.

Uncool: the price: 119 Euro.

Sunday, February 14, 2010 offers cheap vServers with IPv6

The German vServer / hosting provider now offers IPv6. As their vServers start at 2.60 Euro per month, this is a great way to get an IPv6 enabled root server based on Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Suse or some other Linux.

One downside: most texts, including the output of the operating system (!), is in German.

IPv6 announcement here, the cheapest vServer with all options here.
