IPv6 faster/better proof? was Re: Need /24 (arin) asap

I've many customers using MikroTik.



The problem with its IPv6 support is that is only supporting 6in4, which by the way, they call it 6to4, so it is very weird and confusing customers ...



So for native IPv6 or a 6in4 tunnel, is fine, but any other transition mechanism is NOT supported, so we end up reflashing then with OpenWRT.

    I have a MikroTik hAP Lite router for my FTTH service at my house.

    

    It has excellent support for IPv6, including a ton of translation

    mechanisms.

    

    My problem is my home provider doesn't do IPv6, so I run a 6-in-4 tunnel

    back to my own backbone for the service (no latency impact as my home

    provider is my IP Transit customer :-) ). This is a little unstable

    because my home provider doesn't know how to give me a stable IPv4

    address for my FTTH service.

    

    But I do have to say that I am massively impressed by what that little

    MikroTik box can do. IPv6 on my home LAN works as expected, as it does

    across the 6-in-4 tunnel.

    

    Mark.
