Hi,

TVRage will soon be reachable through IPv6 aswell.
As some of you already know (seen your message Marcus lol..) the server already has an IPv6 address, but just not showing the website.

If everything goes as planned, the site should be reachable and viewable to be specific.

840+ days left before the IPv4 Exhaustion!

Cheers!

Hi,

As of now, TVRage is fully IPv6 ready.
Not only the server, but now the website is also reachable for people with IPv6 based IP connectivity.

Cheers,

IPv6 is a new version of the data network protocol on which the Internet is based. Its basic specifications were developed by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) during the 90s. The main motivation behind IPv6 development and deployment was to expand the address space available on the Internet in order to allow the connection of billions of new devices (PDAs, mobile phones, etc.), new users and “always on” technologies (x-DSL, cable television, Ethernet to the home, fiber to the home, power line communications, etc.).

The existing protocol, IPv4, only has 32 bits addresses, thus allowing in theory a space of 232 (approximately four billion)unique globally addressable network interfaces. By contrast, IPv6 uses 128-bit addresses and can therefore address 2128 network interfaces
(340.282.366.920.938.463.463.374.607.431.768.211.456).

So, basicly it means that TVRage is ready for the future.

Hey, Just wondering what happened to the IPv6 publishing of TVRage? My firewall logs show the last time www.tvrage.com resolved to an IPv6 address was 22-01-2010 [NZ Time]...
