All inter­nal ser­vices migrated to IPv6

In the last days I migrated all my inter­nal ser­vices to IPv6.

All my jails have an IPv4 and an IPv6 address now. All Apaches (I have one for my pic­ture gallery, one for web­mail, and one for inter­nal man­age­ment) now lis­ten on the inter­nal IPv6 address too. Squid is updated from 2.x to 3.1 (the most recent ver­sion in the Ports Col­lec­tion) and I added some IPv6 ACLs. The inter­nal Post­fix is con­fig­ured to han­dle IPv6 too (it is deliv­er­ing every­thing via an authen­ti­cated and encrypted chan­nel to a machine with a sta­tic IPv4 address for final deliv­ery). My MySQL does not need an IPv6 address, as it is only lis­ten­ing to requests via IPC (the socket is hardlinked between jails). All ssh dae­mons are con­fig­ured to lis­ten to IPv6 too. The IMAP and CUPS server was pick­ing the new IPv6 addresses auto­mat­i­cally. I also updated Samba to han­dle IPv6, but due to lack of a Win­dows machine which prefers IPv6 over IPv4 for CIFS access (at least I think my Win­dows XP net­book only tries IPv4 con­nec­tions) I can not really test this.

Only my Wii is a lit­tle bit behind, and I have not checked if my Sony-TV will DTRT (but for this I first have to get some time to have a look if I have to update my DD-WRT firmware on the lit­tle WLAN-router which is “extend­ing the cable” from the TV to the inter­nal net­work, and I have to look how to con­fig­ure IPv6 with DD-WRT).

    Yuo know about the var­i­ous free tun­nel­bro­ker ser­vices dont you? tunnelbroker.net (Hur­ri­cane elec­tric) will give you a free /48 if you want to make your inter­nal v6 exter­nally accessible.

    Yes I know about tun­nel­bro­ker ser­vices. My router sup­ports sixxs.net directly. Before I go this way, I want to play a lit­tle bit around inter­nally to get a feel­ing for it.
