Hey guys - We too are evaluating 6Connect, moving away from BlueCat Proteus.
So far so good on the backend and with automation.
We start our net ops operational trials tomorrow.

Thanks James.  We just activated a demo with 6Connect last week.  We'll see
it goes.

 Much appreciated, Eric

We recently migrate away from IPPlan to 6connect. There is significant cost
the application but the end result (IMHO) is well worth it. 

IPPlan was great that is used MySQL, as many of us use that DB, so
was easy, but what we were trying to do with the integration on the
with IPPlan, 6connect does out of the box.

DNS integration, RESTful with ARIN, user access control etc. Not trying to
the product here, just saying that we went through what you are going
and if it helps, I wish we had the time back that we put into IPPlan.

They have hosted and "local" installs available, but they prefer the hosted 
model. We did local install.
