I've also got ipv6 connectivity through a tunnel broker (Sixxs). Can I
ask if you have native ipv6 or a tunnel also and in either case through
who/where. Just curious about the ipv6 options and the ease and
performance out there at the moment.
Also, if there's anyone from Heanet on the list, is accessing
ftp.heanet.ie through ipv6 purposefully slower than ipv4. I've made my
Ubuntu apt and my Gentoo emerge forced to ipv4, as the ipv6 maxs out at
about 10% of what ipv4 gives. For a short while when I first got ipv6 up
a few months ago that wasn't the case and ipv4 and v6 had similar speeds
to heanet.ie mirrors.
On the subject of mirrors to choose: Are there any other NTL broadband
users on the list? If so, do you also seem to find that a traceroute to
anywhere seems to go to Holland as the first hop outside of NTL's
network and then through Great Britain back to anywhere else in Ireland
(like heanet.ie, blacknight.ie, eircom.net, blueface.ie). Is there no
decent peering point in Dublin? Or are all the Irish sites actually
hosted in continental Europe and the UK? Should I be using Dutch mirrors
for all my distro updates?
