Did some IPv6 pings by hostname
- any of my sites
- a site promising to help make you IPv6 ready.
- www.iol.unh.edu did respond but had 100% packet loss, which is interesting, because they tout that the IPv6 Consortium - [iol.unh.edu...] - has helped several vendors - [iol.unh.edu...] obtain IPv6 Ready logos and crow "Since 1996 the UNH-IOL has been a pioneer in IPv6 testing." None of said vendors that I tested (IBM, Dell, etc) responded to the IPv6 ping.
Meanwhile, my host says
We are working on network upgrades. Unfortunately even when we are able to offer IPv6 we will not be able to offer this functionality to our shared, reseller, and SDX clients because cPanel and Plesk do not support IPv6 yet even though most of the underlying software does have IPv6 support.
CPanel says - [docs.cpanel.net...] will cPanel support IPv6?
We believe that 2010 will bring major wins for the protocol and our community, including advances in DNS, OS, and application-based compatibility.
As the protocol moves into the mainstream, we remain dedicated to providing globally viable products by moving toward full IPv6 compatibility.
Okay, cancel that. We believe that 2011 will bring major wins...
