Anyone want to start up a Polipo-driven IPv6 web accelerator?
« on: January 26, 2010, 09:34:46 PM »

For giggles, I threw Polipo on my work's VPN router-CPU and set it to allow only 2000::/3 to connect to it: its working great over my home HE.net tunnel. Since HE's already doing Google DNS provisioning, would it also be feasible to setup a common IPv6 web accelerator we all could use? Set it to run in memory-only, use a Linux box that can use TCP Illinois (I use this on my Ubuntu boxes) or TCP Westwood, and you've got a decent HTTP 1.1 cache with optimized TCP. I am posting config snippets that can be modified for others' use.

/etc/polipo/config

proxyAddress = "::0"
allowedClients = 2000::/3
chunkHighMark = 50331648
objectHighMark = 16384
diskCacheRoot = ""

/etc/sysctl.conf (forwarding=0 for non-routers)

TCP Congestion Control

Add "tcp_westwood" or "tcp_illinois" to your /etc/modules , depending on which one you plan to use. Works on any Ubuntu variant since late 2008.
