Thanks to Dean's great ipv6 presentation at Uniforum,
everyone's got a ::/28 allocation from APNIC now, right?
I'm interested in hearing from people who've got v6
allocations, either from tunnel brokers, or otherwise
who'd like to peer at an NZ ipv6 peering point.
APE and WIX are possibilities, however I have my doubts
on the number of providers on WIX and APE who would be
willing to add v6 addresses on their interfaces from
citylink to any servers in their network; it'd be
easier to put a 6to4 tunnel for testing purposes on a
router in the middle of the network, especially if the router
question already has a tunnel to a tunnelbroker
One of the benefits of this is that any NZ<->NZ v6 traffic
doesn't have to traverse international tunnels.
The big driver of this will be the amount of local content available via
v6. Admittedly there's not much around at the moment,
however I do have mysql, apache, xfree86, cygwin, cpan
and sunfreeware mirrors that are on the 6bone which could
serve as good starters. I'm sure that there would be some
webservers out there who are v6 aware which people would
be willing to route ipv6 to. The more people we can get on the
ix, the more content would become available. Sorta like
the multicast chicken and egg thing.
Could I get a showing of interest on who'd like to be on such an ix (just a
box I have running zebra which a whole bunch of 6in4 tunnels),
even if you've got a ::/64 tunnel allocation from
a tunnel broker? There won't be any international v6 transit
provided, just a BGP4+ feed of all the NZ prefixes of people
