Weblog entry #210 for Steve

IPv6 address updated

Previously this site was accessible via IPv6 via the 6to4 tunnel - now it is using native IPv6 as provided by the hosting company (Bytemark).

Hopefully this should improve the IPv6 response times, by eliminating a couple of hops and round-trips.

I'd previously lowered the TTL on the appropriate DNS entries, so I hope this becomes live for everybody soon. If you're at the mercy of a bad DNS cache then I apologize for the temporary outage.

Steve,
Is IPV6 faster than IPV4?
or is it just the enhanced address space?

I don't think there's any speed difference at all between IPv6 and IPv4.

Does IPV6 have static addressing?
