Hello fellow IPv6 admirers,
(I'm sending this here on behalf of Shane. :) )
As you might know already, Google has been so *tremendously* kind to, as
of ~22 hours ago, initiate the enabling of their Youtube site over IPv6.
It is currently available to participants in their Google over IPv6
user interface so far does *not* have any AAAA
published, but the *much* more important (traffic wise) image and video
servers do. Use tcpdump to verify.
anticimex@hsa:~$ host s.ytimg.com
is an alias for static.cache.l.google.com
has address 188.8.131.52
has IPv6 address 2001:4860:4001:402::15
anticimex@hsa:~$ host v1.lscache1.c.youtube.com
is an alias for v1.lscache1.l.google.com
has address 184.108.40.206
has IPv6 address 2001:4860:4001:402::10
The time when it began is clearly visible in our own IPv6 graphs,
and you can see similar correlated data at for example
To figure out all the mappings they give you, if you want to trace etc,
something similar to: "for i in `seq 1 24 `; do for y in `seq 1 8 `; do
; done ; done | grep 'IPv6 address' |
cut -d' ' -f 1,5 | sort -uk2" could be used - at least from where I sit.
Adjust for correctness.
I'm sure that as this matures and bugs are wiped out, there will no
longer be any need for the Google over IPv6 program and everybody will
be able to access this. Until then, join! :)
I bow to the Google IPv6 team, their netops and everybody there that is
working so hard to give the Internet true CONTENT on IPv6. Yippie!
From 48514, much of love! Thank you guys (and gals)!
