I enabled IPv6 on the machine hosting this blog a few months ago, but I hadn’t actually tested it. In fact, I don’t have any other hosts with IPv6 support so I can’t really test it myself. Since World IPv6 Day is coming soon, I decided it was time to get things working.
Looking around, I found an IPv6 website validator, which actually let me figure out if things were working out. There were just two problems:
- My AAAA DNS record didn’t transfer automatically when I switched from GoDaddy
- My web server supported IPv6 but wasn’t listening on any IPv6 interfaces
I guess I am ready for the future now. Maybe I’ll even be able to test my IPv6 support personally one day.
