Requesting IPV6 in unRAID kernel.

Lets get into specifics rather than brinksmanship, what are the real implications of this and do they break anything.

 

e.g perhaps this list includes

  • GUI work for general network config
  • Documentation work (lots)
  • License server
  • Update servers
  • Docker GUI work
  • Docker back end
  • Virtual GUI work
  • Virtual back end
  • Samba control
  • AFS control
  • FTP control
  • NFS control
  • Core addons e.g. unassigned drives
  • Windows domain specific stuff

What is missing or included by mistake?

What need to work at alpha stage when IPv6 is a command line only option?

 

 

All the more reason to get this prioritized. I asked for it for unRaid 6.4 with the expectation that schedule-wise to be "sometime 2018", more likely towards the end of 2018. So when it's said not to be on 6.4, I sigh a little and change my expectations schedule-wise to be "sometime after 2020".

I live in the US and my ISP has been supporting and encouraging users to use IPV6 for over a year now, so it's not entirely all doom and gloom in the US when it comes to that.

 

I do too and my USA connections support IPV6 while my China ones don't presently. My point is that it's the China side that has the need.

 

On the China side my router thinks my external IP is one thing, while ipecho.net confirms that my router is being fooled. And my external IP is changing every 48 hours like clockwork. It's a total pain.

Thank you for chiming in here!  It's folks like you that will help get this prioritized sooner by making yourselves heard!

But that might be because we own the majority of ipv4 addresses in the US (the US DoD alone has 42,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 of them; no, that's not an exaggerated figure).

 

 

LOL, given there are only 4.x billion ipv4 addresses available in total, I'd say that's not just an exaggeration, that's a gross exaggeration.

There are 2^32 ipv4 addresses = 4,294,967,296

And 2^128 ipv6 addresses = 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456

 

Which is apparently said out loud like this...

 

"340 undecillion, 282 decillion, 366 nonillion, 920 octillion, 938 septillion, 463 sextillion, 463 quintillion, 374 quadrillion, 607 trillion, 431 billion, 768 million, 211 thousand and 456"

Careful so you don't end up with a barman that is studying advanced math in university and have the bar job for extra money. Might be expensive for you :D

I think I learned those words when I was about 12. What a bunch of nerds.:D

That is a pretty big deal as it essentially enforces all new business signups use IPv6. I think this will catch many IT people by surprise.

Wireless!  Not FiOS.

You will have to excuse the assumption they were a wired provider as I am not even on the same hemisphere as this company. I read Wireless and in my head substituted Cable and Wireless which for me has always been cable and lan extension services. A mistake was made so not as big a deal as thought but still significant.

Just a quick update, we are in the process of testing ipv6 enabled in the kernel. There is no way to load it as a module AFAIK, but it appears we won't have to as it doesn't seem to have any negative impact on our ipv4 support.  You will all be able to test this when we release 6.4-rc1.  and no, I won't be saying a release date for that other than BRiT's favorite line to quote me by: Soon(TM).

Thank you for the first steps being taken. This is much appreciated.

I'm only using virtual machines for now because i need IPv6 support. My provider is pushing CG-NAT on all new contracts so there is only a shared IPv4. This trend is happening on most ISP new contracts here in Brazil, only old contracts are keeping a private IPv4. So thanks for the firsts steps towards IPv6 support i will be very glad with it :).

That's great news. Thanks for this.

My ISP is pushing CG-NAT for SPECIFIC FIber customers according to a friend, but not for DSL. Guess which end of the stick I'm on: DSL. Stlll waiting on FIBER!

 

I encouraged him/her to internally contact people to get IPv6 on the table, but (s)he said "it has fallen on deaf ears."

 

Guess we're stuck on IPv4.

You don't want CG-NAT. Absolutely don't.

Thank you for prioritizing IPv6 support. I access many of my internal network devices at home via native IPv6 from my ISP (Cox) to avoid IPv4 NAT translation. I one-day hope to reach my Docker services directly via IPv6. (e.g. Streaming Plex content via IPv6)
