Over the past couple of weeks, you might have noticed that for
Sourceforge downloads, "Lausanne, Switzerland (SWITCH)"
(switch.dl.sourceforge.net) was no longer listed as a mirror option.
The reason was that the disk array of the server had become too small
to hold the entire Sourceforge mirror dataset (because of all the
binary stuff I guess - this thing should be called ".iso-forge" :-).
We have now replaced it with a new server with larger disks, so now it
should be fully included in the Sourceforge download mirror set.
Note that, like mirror.switch.ch and many other of our services, this
is reachable over IPv6 in addition to IPv4.
Now go and test that thing :-)

That's the main issue why IPv6 is not really growing. Too many people
think IPv6 needs to have a short term business case.
Think back 15 years. Internet would not exist as it is known today if
people then only thought about the business case.
If you don't get extra v4 space in 1000 days, don't even consider to
complain. You have been warned.
I would very much worry, if my most important resource to maintain my
business would dry out in less than 1000 days. That's why we fixed IPv6

so only solution is to have a box wich converts V6 to V4
well again there is a solution, buy another PC and use that as a
nat/conversion box. Nat router before 15W new PC 120W
is that the way we go to an green future ?
Or connect straigth all devices to the ISP, thats even a go back to the
oldfirewall/natless times in home envirnonment. that would be a push
forward again for malware. opens new way for some "bundestrojaner" ;)

most XP-PC are having IPV6 allready installed with all his funy virtual
networkdevices. if i ask, allways got the answer, i dont know what that is, i
just activated it because its there.

what about all the 18 A class net not in use ?
How to deassign large Company b class network which they since years
only use internally ? UBS, CS to only mention the largest ones
think about the mil network as well ... a shame and an waste of IP-Space.
i'm absolutely not against IPV6 but now, to push the enduser to use it with all
his hazzle is the wrong way, We have enough Banana products on the
world, where the users suffering while waiting for upgrade x-y to get it
. users need an all over solution. working and plug and play.
in the IPV6 case the priority is different than in other cases. not the request
of the client will lead to more IPV6 Enabled products, it have to be ready and
implemented to getting users attention.
that we have to accept.
its not a feature . its a must to go for IPV6.
It have nothing to do with marketing .. sorry to dissapoint the marketing guys
seems I found some kind of a kaspersky (KIS 2009) bug ,-) just to cheer you
if you add the "no-advertise" keyword to your search or any webform e.g. by
searching for "ospf no-advertise" you get an empty result / white page...
independant of your search engine (google, msn live, etc.) ,-)))

Subject: [torix-members] Bill Norton's Peering papers (fwd)
(Forwarded from a posting I sent to OttIX members)
Bill Norton of NANOG and Equinix fame has put together a web site
dedicating to IX peering, complete with his famous whitepapers. I used
a couple of very old versions way back when to convince people at my day
job of the value of establishing an IX, and after some searching I found
Jake's original web page describing something called OttIX.
There have been a lot of updates to his white papers over the years and
I'm sure everyone here will find them to be of interest:
Of course I'm preaching to the converted, but if anyone here encounters
folks who have heard of Internet exchanges, IXs or exchange points and
hesitate about connecting to any, the whitepapers might help.
The registration for SwiNOG-18 in April 2009 is now ready. The agenda is
partially filled and will be completed over the next 1-2 weeks
See you @ SwiNOG-18...
P.S. SwiNOG-19 will be held at the 29th septembre 2009 - save the date ;-)

Today I got a document sent to us because we are listed as ISP. You
probably have all received it as well.
Its a case of a Party A against "unknown" who has said something wrong/
bad about Party A. (Ehrverletzung/Verleumdung etc.)
While I can understand that Party A tries to get their right to get
things wrong written about them is being changed to correct, the ISP's
of Switzerland are now out of a sudden involved in this as they are
"in charge of blocking" the corresponding site.
Also what upset's me most is the sentence that this is the status of a
"Verfügung" from a "Untersuchungsrichter" and there is no legal way to
oppose ("gegen die vorliegende Verügung keine Rechtsmittel möglich
sind"). This might be true for the immediately accused as they had
their chance to answer but for us "other 3rd party" ISP's it can not
hold true as we have never heard of this case ever before and we have
not been involved in this case before.
I would suggest the ISP community of Switzerland stands up united
against such ridiculous practice of judges who have no clue how the
I see two possible ways
a) All ISP's send an INvoice to the Party A for the installment of the
filters. They have caused this work so they are liable for the cost.
Its not our fault.
b) all ISP's object in written to the decision of being in this case
