IPv6 and aput.net


Snowflake

In the spirit of the dancing kame, if you visit this page via IPv6 the snowflake will twirl

aput.net is connected to the IPv6 world through two tunneling mechanisms: 6to4 and freenet6. In both cases I get a block of 280 addresses (a /48 network) to use. Under current IPv6 addressing standards that breaks down to 216 subnets of 264 addresses. I can't even begin to imagine how I would use any significant fraction of that address space, but it's fun to have available.

Because the tunneling mechanisms introduce a significant extra latency, I don't advertise the IPv6 addresses by default. Here's a link that will only work via IPv6: http://www-ipv6.aput.net/
