         For all you IPv6 Fan boys out there how well is it working when
implemented???
         How well is it working out site your LAN/WAN and communicating

         How well is strictly use of IPv6 working in communicating out
site LAN/WAN deployment..
         How well are ( M$ ) clients handling falling to IPv4 when there
is no IPv6 AAAA records in DNS servers.

         For a fact company's aren't gonna switch unless ( forced or
business wize ) they have to <periot>

I vote turn it of by default.

IPV6 is coming and it's not far away.  Some will not update their
fedora systems for a long time even if they can't get support.  (I
know of several FC 2, 3, 4 installations.) It's important for systems
that can support ipv6 to just work when it  does become popular.

Wanted to know from real setups how the clients are handling failing to IPv4 when for example and an IPv6 AAAA dns record isn't available and the client
has to fall back to IPv4.

As in is it all working in the IPv6 Promised land....

IPv6 only LAN/WAN ( site to site ) setups work like charm everbody knows that. The real *f* happens when you have deal with using anything outsite your LAN/WAN.
And company's cant be forced to switch or support both IPv4 and IPv6.....

I suggest that you search for some information.  I used google with
the terms "ipv6 comcast".   Here are some links:
