Microsoft and Teredo

While these are really good questions, I'm afraid I don't have really good answers to them yet.  We haven't made the bits available for customers to install their own Teredo Servers/Relays at this point, and because we haven't, we also don't have good deployment guidance to go along with that.

I have my own feelings, but let me ask this: what do you all feel about installing a Teredo server in order to provide v6 connectivity to your clients? Is this something that you are really interested in?

You feedback is welcome.

Probably, yeah.

Maybe you can provide operational experience from running the Teredo
servers and relays that Microsoft host? Do you host them just at
Microsoft or do you also have some inside ISPs? Have you done any
work to help/advise on deploying Teredo servers/relays in to ISPs?
Any learnings from that that you can share? What about corporate
That oughta get you started :-)
