My domain transfer from Dotster to Gandi completed today, giving me the ability to add IPv6 glue records for my nameservers. With that in place, end-to-end IPv6 is now possible for my colo services:

(Records unrelated to the trace have been omitted for readability.)

It also gave me the ability to complete Hurricane Electric’s IPv6 certification:

Also, last week I found out that my work office’s ISP has native IPv6 connectivity, and they set us up with an allocation this week, a /64 for the border VLAN between our networks and a /48 routed to our router/firewall. It’s up and running, though the only internal address I’ve set up so far is my workstation.

Future. Here.
