IPv6 content experiment

Hi Kevin,

I'm not sure if netflow is able to provide measures of different type of
transition mechanisms, for example Teredo, 6to4, etc. ? I think is very
important to know what transition mechanisms the people uses, and my
experience is that the usage of Teredo is growing since Vista has been

It may be better to do those measurements directly at the web sites being
hosted as dual stack ? Actually we are doing something similar, but without
having a specific IPv6 content, just on customers web sites.

I've included some preliminary stats about that in my last week presentation
at the MENOG 
.pdf). They also show the % of users from each region (of course this is
biased depending on the contents).

It will be also good to include many more tunnel brokers. We have our own
one and some others at different countries listed at

Also, at http://www.ipv6day.org, you have many other TBs and detailed
instructions for setting up IPv6 at many OSs, in different languages, which
may be linked to help users that want to try this.

We will be happy to provide some help if it is required.
