IPv6 WLCG Site Survey

From GridPP Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search



  1. Is your site already offering connectivity, routing and naming services for IPv6 end systems (i.e. is your site already connected to the worldwide IPv6 network and ready to support IPv6 end systems)?
  2. If so, have you already enabled IPv6 on some of the services you manage? Please provide details on which services are enabled
  3. If your site is not yet IPv6-ready, are there plans for this? If so, what are the timelines?
  4. Does your site currently have problems with allocating a sufficient number of IPv4 addresses? Or foreseen in the near future?
  5. Are there other issues you are aware of? Or interesting work going on in this area?
  6. Any other comments?
