    Thanks for the article.

    I'm wondering what ISPs have to do to provide for IPv6 and how that will affect an ISP's current users.

    Also, users will have to insure that their firewall is IPv6 compatible.

    ISPs around the world (worse in some countries) have been procrastinating about the inevitable deployment of IPv6 since 1990, however, the reality of that deployment is a now a considerable step closer.

    This is not to say the Internet is about to crash and burn anytime in the next few months, it does, however, mean a number of 'bandaid' like solutions will probably be coming to an ISP near you.

    For further reading I'd suggest:

    An IPv4-to-IPv6 Transition Approach (pdf)

    Dual - Stack lite (pdf)

    http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3484

    http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5220

    Basically, when you next upgrade any of your computer equipment, especially the router, make sure it natively supports IPv6. I's also suggest taking advantage of one of the free tunnel brokers such as:

    Hurricane Electric
    gogo6/Freenet6
    SixXS

    Get yourself ahead of the game.
