Good. Those kind of things should be ahead of the curve.

practicum that IPv6 is part of that. so how many people here are
using IPv6 on a serious basis in their IT infrastructure?


already? and why?

It is easier to deploy it in a gradual strategic way than to scramble
when you suddenly have to support it.


did you really get to a point where IPv4 simply
couldn't do the job anymore?

There is just no reason not to begin phasing out IPv4.

What if your internal/local/RFC1918 network is all IPv4 and works very
well? Is there a reason to start phasing that out? I'm not so sure,
it's certainly not easy coming up with a business case. In particular
if you've still got IPv4-only applications (mysql, asterisk as somebody
already mentioned).

Wrt to the external network, it would be highly desirable to begin a
slow transition to IPv6, but my main worry here is that my upstream
provider does not have the skills required to support me/my company.
There are not very many IPv6 deployments on xDSL yet.
