IPv6 , what is it ?

Post by jarvis2323 »

I have to ask what the benefit for ipv6 is for me at this point in time?  I already get 500 kB/s so I don't think it would be speed.

IPV6 is usually something you get from your ISP. Not very popular yet in "the west", but coming up in "the east".

I understand what it is.  I'm asking what is the benefit of using it at home?  I already have an ipv4 ip address that gets me on with my isp.  And yes, through my router I nat that out to 5+ computers.  Big deal.  Still not seeing the point of hitting an ipv6 newserver.

And benefit of that IPv6 server I posted ? It's free ;-)

That's all that I was posting

IPV6, is the name of China's new Internet, which is 1000 times as fast as the current IPV4.
The Chinese are counting on the new Internet to be more capable of managing the great amount of mailboxes, which the Asians will have within a few years.
