The madness continues - IPv4 address trading...

And it will get a lot worse, simply because of the greed and laziness of large ISPs with vested interests.

:-\ and the BGP tables weren’t big enough already… bad development!

Indeed! what with that and the prospect of double NAT, the future is not overly rosy.

A nightmare to troubleshoot…

Interesting, but short article at Ars

For instance, Facebook and Google both represent a huge chunk of all Web traffic and have IPv6-capable servers, but don't have IPv6 addresses for www.facebook.com and www.google.com in the DNS, so they don't generate much, if any, IPv6 traffic.

Doh!

Yeah like how many hit’s do they expect on a v6 number?
The author wrote a good book on IPv6 btw, I’m just half-way there but have other things on my mind…

Thanks for pointing out the book connection, it’s a book I have in my collection, too but I hadn’t joined the dots.
