As the network administrator for a Web hosting company, I've not seen
any coherent (and useful) information about how I can provide both IPv6
addressing and IPv4 addressing for the sites I host. I'm in the process
of doing OS upgrades, and IPv6 is included...but currently I shut off
IPv6 because I don't have a IPv6 firewall solution yet.
That includes DNS, by the way. I'm deploying new DNS servers, and would
be *very* interested in how to convince BIND 9.2.4 to answer IPv6 queries.
Another issue: the Plesk Web control panel software from SW-Soft
doesn't seem to have any support for IPv6. The CPanel Web Host Manager
at least lets me create AAAA records in zone files, so roughly 1/3 of my
customers *could* have IPv6 capability.
Lurkers: tutorials welcome.
