Testing: IPv6

There is a typical discussion/flame-war in NANOG about Netflix blocking HE's 
IPv6 tunnels.  That reminds me that we should be sure we are testing IPv6.

Is anybody running a system without IPv4?

What sort of strange cases should we be testing?


Even if you don't have an IPv6 connection to the main Internet, you can use 
IPv6 on your local LAN.  Use something like:
  server fe80::226:2dff:fe20:457%eth0

The % turns into a link local address on the specified interface.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
