Title: What is the long term solution in the end with ipv6 subnets?
Post by: dcottle on January 16, 2011, 12:57:20 PM
I really love hurricane providing this - really great.

But what will be the long term in the end solution? Will you be offering these free tunnels forever, or will there be a commercial rental available?

Just interested what will happen in the end?

Cheers,
David

Well, once everyone has native IPv6 access, there's no longer a use for a IPv6 tunnel.

Yes I know that is very true, but until then I am assuming this service will be provided?

Just I want to use it for some web sites as I have no native ipv6, but don't want it to 'go away'.
