Any reason why not?

 

Could be any number of reasons including:

 

No reason to,

Things work fine as they are,

IPv6 is more of a novelty type thing right now than anything,

etc etc

You could say the same thing about any new technology.

 

With that sort of mentality, you could say all of s4gru is a novelty, LTE is a novelty, every sort of new technology is a novelty, etc etc.

 

This is an entusiast forum, what do you expect :)

I just noticed that comcast upgraded my CMTS to support IPV6 so I was curious and noticed that s4gru.com isn't supporting ipv6 :(

 

Any reason why not?

95% of web sites do not support IPv6 yet.  Once the hosting company for s4gru.com upgrades their network and hosting servers to support IPv6, they will then issue an IPv6 address that can be used for s4gru.com along with the existing IPv4.  Then and only then can you access it via IPv6.  This will likely take many years for all the hosting companies to convert to dual stack IPv4 and IPv6.

 

Your home computer should already have dual stack IPv4 and IPv6.  s4gru.com and all other IPv4 only websites will continue to work fine for years until they are converted to dual stack IP addresses.

I'll fight tooth and nail the IPv6 transition :)  Long live IPv4!  It's way too much a PIA.. but then I don't deal with it on a day to day basis like some do.  I know it was made for the long haul, but it's overly complicated.  My wife worked with IPv6 on a SNMP product and wow, some of the translation routines were just unmanageable.

What benefit, exactly, do you believe IPv6 brings to the table for a website like s4gru, or any website for that matter?

 

It's just version obsession.

It's hardly that simple. LTE brings bonafide real world advantages to cell phone data networks. Tangible and identifiable advantages. The average joe will immediately *feel* a difference with LTE and many other "new technologies." What tangible benefit is there to IPv6 vs. IPv4 to you or the average joe?

 

IPv6 exists only because there aren't even addresses in the IPv4 world, it's like..... adding a new area code because you've run out of phone numbers. It solves only a problem here or there, but creates new ones.... Massive new ones.

 

Anyhow, to more specifically answer your question, I'd imagine Robert can't even tell you when it will happen for s4gru.com. This site is hosted at IP.Board and it would be simply up to them when they transition to IPv6. As far as all the users here and on their other boards.... You'll notice no difference.

I'm sorry you're incorrect about that.

 

We've been discussing IPv6 in the Staff Forums. Once IP.Board updates their servers next week and we place the code in on our side, every time someone likes one of your post, a Ice Cream Sundae with Rainbow Sprinkles will magically appear. So listen, if you want to stay on IPv4 you enjoy yourself. I'll take my Rainbow Sprinkles. B)

Well, one benefit of each device being assigned a globally unique IPv6 address is that, for those who break the rules and get banned, Robert can also ban their handsets from accessing S4GRU ever again.

Can you substitute the Ice Cream Sundae for Fried Chicken? Asking for a friend.

Does his name begin with an R?  :lol:

Nah, gotta wait for the IPv6.1 update. Looking like 4 months out. Franks Redhot is in the IPv6.2 release though. :censored:

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
