Re: Great little game :)

Iv'e seen this before & it requires IPV6 to access, although there is a workaround for IPV4 users & can not think of it right now Wink
Otherwise they will see
I see OJ found the workaround link Smiley
There is references to this on TalkTalks forun Wink

Re: Great little game :)

[quote= http://talktalkmembers.com/t5/Unlimited-Broadband/IPv6-when-will-it-happen/td-p/817941]There are an increasing number of ipv6-only websites out there (example: loopsofzen.co.uk/ ) which leaves customers paying for internet access unable to access them while TT remains firmly stuck in the 20th century.
IPv6 was ratified 15 years ago. It's hardly "new" or "under development"
And no, tunnels aren't the answer. Loopsofzen (among others) can only be accessed via a NATIVE ipv6 connection.

Re: Great little game :)

Thanks Torp ...clear as mud.. You doing an O.U. course in practical Klingon? Grin
I still don't understand what IPV6 is, will have to Google it as people do talk about it quite often. Shocked

Re: Great little game :)

Sorry, but I would have to learn froom Google & Bing has the added klingon to the list of languages Tongue

The above post was referencing the earlier time that I had seen loofsofzen
Try this
[quote= http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6]Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the latest version of the Internet Protocol (IP), the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the Internet. IPv6 was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to deal with the long-anticipated problem of IPv4 address exhaustion.
IPv6 is intended to replace IPv4, which still carries more than 96% of Internet traffic worldwide as of May 2014.[1][2][3] As of June 2014, the percentage of users reaching Google services with IPv6 surpassed 4% for the first time.[4]
Every device on the Internet is assigned an IP address for identification and location definition. With the rapid growth of the Internet after commercialization in the 1990s, it became evident that far more addresses than the IPv4 address space has available were necessary to connect new devices in the future. By 1998, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) had formalized the successor protocol. IPv6 uses a 128-bit address, allowing 2128, or approximately 3.4×1038 addresses, or more than 7.9×1028 times as many as IPv4, which uses 32-bit addresses and provides approximately 4.3 billion addresses. The two protocols are not designed to be interoperable, complicating the transition to IPv6. However, several IPv6 transition mechanisms have been devised to permit communication between IPv4 and IPv6 hosts.
IPv6 provides other technical benefits in addition to a larger addressing space. In particular, it permits hierarchical address allocation methods that facilitate route aggregation across the Internet, and thus limit the expansion of routing tables. The use of multicast addressing is expanded and simplified, and provides additional optimization for the delivery of services. Device mobility, security, and configuration aspects have been considered in the design of the protocol.

Re: Great little game :)

Thanks Torp, so it's basically the same as car number plates really (well, what they have done with the way they are changed) - reformatting and making a greater number of addresses.
Just a pity that IPV4 and IPV6 can't talk to each other!  Shocked

Re: Great little game :)

IPV6 adresss are similarin apperance to a router mac address like this (may be a tad Confucius)
[quote= http://www.opus1.com/ipv6/whatdoesanaddresslooklike.html]Unlike the familiar IPv4 addresses which are 32 bits long, written in decimal, and separated by periods, IPv6 addresses are 128 bits long, written in hexadecimal, and separated by colons. An example would be:

3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf
Colons separate 16-bit fields. Leading zeros can be omitted in each field as can be seen above where the field :0003: is written :3:. In addition, a double colon (Roll eyes can be used once in an address to replace multiple fields of zeros. For example:

fe80:0:0:0:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf
can be written
fe80::200:f8ff:fe21:67cf

This link http://www.webopedia.com/DidYouKnow/Internet/ipv6_ipv4_difference.html explains more in detail the differences between IPV4 & IPV6
