During a recent Joint Techs meeting at Fermilab Ron Broersma of Defense
Research and Engineering Network (DREN) included a scorecard in his
presentation that tried to quantify how well major organisations were
embracing IPv6. I thought that this was such a fine idea that I’ve decided
to replicate it here. I started by grabbing a list of organisations
associated with Internet2 from their web site and tried to work out their
domains...........................

......................While some ISPs might argue that their networks
support IPv6 (and that they use it every day) because they have an IPv6
prefix that is announced to the world I tend to believe in “eating ones own
dog food” and so it’s more important to be seen to be using it in some
meaningful way rather than potentially have a single host generate a
suitable BGP announcement. Therefore like Ron I have identified some
services and use them as an indicator of usage.



   1.

   1.Web server accessible via IPv6;
   2.

   2.Email deliverable via IPv6;
   3.

   3.DNS name servers accessible via IPv6;
   4.

   4.An NTP service accessible via IPv6; and
   5.

   5.A Jabber service accessible via IPv6


Partial points are awarded if you have an accessible “www.ipv6.$domain”
site. I also now look for “ipv6.$domain” too but that’s the limit. I think a
“normal” user would give up after trying them, assuming they even try.
