Finally a useful post in this thread. Good work on the deployment of real ipv6!
Thanks. And thanks to Vendor-C for helping us through it. The IPv6 Broadband
featureset on the ASR platform starting from IOS-XR 3.1 is a vast improvement
on its predecessors.
Biggest hassle with IPv6 in production right now: DNS support is woefully
undercooked. I don't think anyone has put anywhere near as much effort into
making it fluid, user-friendly, and automated. Simple questions like, "How
are reverse mappings supposed to work when you can't predict an end-user's
address?" have no good answer. If any systems folks want a nice meaty problem
domain to focus their efforts on, DNS would be da shiznit.
