Services active January 2010

Some time since the last update. The server has been turned into the nameserver for the hansderidder.it domain (asn ns1.hansderidder.biz) and was added to the ntp pool (http://www.pool.ntp.org) as ntp.hansderidder.it Both services are available on both IPv4 and IPv6

Continue

Gandi added modules for ip6tables. Fire-walling can be applied. Configured the server as DNS for hansderidder.it. Like apache, this works fine. It looks like IPv6 is available in applications already. The main issue is to get people and enterprises to configure IPv6 on their servers.

Firewall installation fails

As security comes first I tried to install some sort of firewall. It seems the Xen-kernel provided by gandie does not have ip6_tables module in it. For the home network I installed wide-dhcpv6-server but I did not configure it yet.

Local DNS and theory

Today I spend digging IPv6 fundamentals. The book from Cristian Huitema i got some time ago appears to be a bit outdated (it's from 1997). It's still a very good introduction on how and why IPv6 is set up like it is.
I decided to set up some IPv6 at home to find out how things work. If got the DNS-server working properly now.

IPv6 BetaTesting

I'm participating in the Gandi IPv6 bet test program. I'm using a brand new server for this; gandi.antiperfect.org. The server runs Debian5 and will be used as a web-server for hansderidder.it my IT consultancy firm to be. During the process I may also use the server as DNS-server and other things for hansderidder.it as the company has not started yet.
First thing I did was fire-walling the thing, allowing ICMP, DNS, NTP, http(s) and ssh traffic.
After running the mkv6 script I have IPv6 address is 2001:4b98:41::d946:bc7c:124/64 and it just works. Almost too easy. To get more into it I will do thinks like using it as a gateway so I can use IPv6 from home too.
