Quote from: Kizaki on December 02, 2008, 07:29:58 PMOne more question. What is the (bandwidth limit/cap/reasonable usage) or whatever you want to call it for the IPv6 tunnels provided by HE. I doubt I will be using much any time soon. I just want to know for future reference.
QuoteI saw one person's IRC comments on a provider who only assigns the customer a /48, sticks x:y:z::1 on the provider's router, and tells the customer to figure out the rest.

Thats one friggin huge subnet.
QuoteSadly, they had requested that exact setup and their provider refused, stating that how they were doing it was policy.

It's supposed to be part of their agreement with ARIN when they obtain their IPv6 prefixes. I can't find anything on the net that says this. Do you know if this is true or not?
QuoteThis document provides recommendations to the addressing registries (APNIC, ARIN and RIPE-NCC) on policies for assigning IPv6 address blocks to end sites. In particular, it recommends the assignment of /48 in the general case, /64 when it is known that one and only one subnet is needed and /128 when it is absolutely known that one and only one device is connecting.
