Whats going on with IPv6?

Why have the lowend providers stopped providing usable IPv6 address ranges? I mean most say they give you a /80 or /64 address prefix but then limit you to a few addresses within that range. I mean granted if you are not routing the addresses then one address might suffice but openvpn wants a /112 prefix and starts from ::1000 (ie doesn't like leading zeros).

    I heard ColoCrossing offered free IPv6!

  • Free shmee. Do you know how many addresses there are in 128 - 112 bits? 65000. I just don't want to have to go to some stupid web interface and then manually add addresses etc.

    I heard that no one uses IPv6, they're worthless numbers. /jks, that's the ColoCrossing way!

  • I think IPv6 is no longer fashionable.

    What is your source on that? Name at least five which used to provide usable IPv6 address ranges, but then stopped.

    In any case, just get the currently running Online.net special for 11 EUR and enjoy you own /48, not bothering with any of those silly "lowend providers" anymore.

    I don't think OpenVZ allows a one line subnet addition on venet which I'm pretty sure is still highly relevant to most providers here. Adding a /64 one by one means impossibly long container boot, if it doesn't break it completely.

    we offer only one 1ipv6 by default. But if any /64 request, we still will give it without any fee.

    Bingo bango. You'll need to use veth or just bind each IP. We're wanting to start including a routed subnet with each instance but we'll likely have to just restrict that to KVM's.

    And to add to this, in my experience OpenVZ acts really weird when you start getting multiple VPSs with over 256 IPs assigned to it on the same node. We've had a lot of clients spam the "add more" button until the node broke so now we have a limit per VPS on how many IPv6 each one can have even though they get a whole /64 for themselves.

    Yep, you can end up with the node sitting there telling ssh to restart for each and every IP so it takes forever. You can get it to work faster by pooling all the -ipadd calls into a single command but even then it's still iffy.

    So long OpenVZ.

    The only issue I had was with the "vzlist" command, it wouldn't load the complete list if there were too many IPs assigned to a single VPS which was weird because I was just using "-a" and not "-at" but it still broke it.
