Response to: Most (all?) distro's IPv6 enabled out-of-the-box

I'd like to point out that Freenet6 (and 6bone) are deprecated and will eventually be removed.


A better way may be to use the 6to4 anycast address, as described here: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Linux+IPv6-HOWTO/configuring-ipv6to4-tunnels.html

    Hello,

    I appologize for late reply. I wanted to double check the infomation before I post my reply.

    As far as addressing:
    - 6bone uses 3ffe::/16
    - "IPv6 Internet" uses 2001::/16 (the allocation of addresses is done by regional registries to
    providers)
    - 6bone is phasing out in 2006 (still a few years...)
    - Freenet6, at this moment, uses 3ffe:b00::/16. I contacted them and they intent to continue supporting freenet6. However, it seems that some "competitors" of Freenet6 are sending false
    messages using the "6bone phasing out" to say that Freenet6 is going south... The reality is that large corporations are still using 3ffe::

    For more info on this, I suggest to contact freenet6 directly.

    Thank you,
    Ibrahim
