Modem - Netgear DM111P
Router - Asrock A330GC running FreeBSD (amd64) and IPv6 enabled ppp
Current IPv6 access - TunnelBroker.net
Interested in trailing - Yes! (in case my previous posts on this matter were unclear)

Yeah there will, no dates set yet though but we'll be looking for a few triallists so if you already have IPv6 capable hardware the best place to let us know is this thread and we'll keep you updated when it's nearer the time.

Me too. I'm already online with HE's Tunnelbroker service, and I use a Linux box (actually Xen VM) as a router.

Nice one guys, I've just started compiling a list which I will add to from anyone else who posts here.

I have an ADSL modem which is independent of PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) and thus should work with IPv6. I would be interested in trying that.

Does it matter that my exchange is 20CN with no current planned date for 21CN ?

IPV6 is just a protocol, doesn't matter if you're on dialup, adsl, asdl2 or fibre, cept for speeds.

I'd like to add my name to the list, Cisco 877W so IPV6 ready.

Hi

Hopefully mid-to-end April we will be ready to start testing with real end-users.  Our aim is to be ready for participation in World IPv6 Day (8 June 2011), not just making our website available but to have broadband users enabled too.

I was just checking what I'd need to change to switch from a tunnel to a PN system, seems pretty simple.

Code:
ipv6 unicast-routing
!
interface Vlan1
   ipv6 address 2001:8B0:xxxx:1::1/64
!
interface Dialer1
   ipv6 enable
!
ipv6 route ::/0 Dialer1

Though I have my ipv6 address on BVI1 not VLAN1 (for Wireless) though on older firmwares putting it on BVI1 will break it (past experience, luckily I have a console cable to fix my mistakes Grin)

A blog will be posted in the coming weeks, this will include our plan etc.

I'd look forward to it.

Even if its still early days, and not everything is yet tied down, such a blog may be helpful and interesting now. There will be increasing public awareness as IPv6 day approaches and early adopters will want to prepare for whats going to happen next.

I stumbled across a presentation called BT 21CN Network IPv6 Transformation given to an IPv6 Conference in Ghent, Belgium, in December 2010.

This suggests that 20CN exchanges will employ IPv6 in IPv4 tunnelling, rather than a more native IPv6 support on 21CN exchanges. Obviously this conference presentation should not be considered authoritative.

Can someone at Plusnet provide an authoritative statement regarding IPv6 support on 20CN exchanges?

Aren't we tunnelled through to the PN gateways anyway? When I was on the RIN trial I was seeing a load of intermediate hops that I don't see now.

The slide in the presentation for 20CN BB

"IPSC PTA infrastructure"

Plusnet use the IPSC L2TP infrastructure.  End-User IPv6 & IPv4 packets are tunnelled to Plusnet using IPv4

Thank you for the reply.

Surely you mean L2TP rather than LT2P.

Interesting slide. For the 20CN case will end users have to create their own PN prefix+interface ID unicast address(es) as we won't have access to dhcp6? The other interesting bit is the statement that 6to4 tunnels will be required between the EU (End User?) and the TMAN (wossat?). Does the TMAN exist within BT or PN's infrastructure - ie who will the EU have to talk to to set this up and get support for?

TMAN is the BT Retail Broadband Platform

With Plusnet it will be native IPv6 with dual stacks on the CPE.  This is what we're currently testing in an L2TP environment.  Prefix Delegation will occur after PPP is up, IPV6CP will get the WAN up then DHCPv6 and ICMPv6 will do the rest.

I've got a Cisco 877 sat here ready-and-waiting for you to flick the switch so do please count me in for consideration!
