This is from a Speedtest.net test.. You can see its spreading out the load for download and upload nicely across both ports. But they only reach 150/150.

My CPU only shows a 1-2% increase during these tests.

Re: Noob IPv6 question

Boooooo...... Both on the reality that no doubt Cox will use DHCPv6 PD and that I would need to wait for ROS Version 6 before I had a DHCPv6 client. That just takes all the fun outta my day :( Maybe one of the reasons they are doing a trial with business first cuz its static IP's. XP does not have a...

Re: Noob IPv6 question

Yes that does help. :D

How do I go about discovering what my prefix might be without them telling me ? Is there some process or tool I could use to determine what my prefix should be ?

Re: Noob IPv6 question

Hi fewi ! Thanks for the ruleset. Looks basic and simple. Even a noob like me followed those rules. So.... I need a IPv6 DHCP client to do this huh. Which is what I expected. I think MT needs to work on DHCPv6 a tad quicker considering that Cox is already doing business trials apparently with reside...

Re: Noob IPv6 question

I dont see support for DHCPv6 in the release notes for 5.0rc...

As cox will do what most ISP's are doing for IPv6 it might be a good idea to have a thread or example manual page with a how to on setting up IPv6 for these situations for us noobs.

Re: Noob IPv6 question

Nope.... nothing yet I can find.. DHCPv6.... Hmmm.... I like learning new things :) I will go look it up and see what more I can find out from Cox. I dont think they have started on any residential addresses yet tho, just business accounts. Phoenix has started that tho and the infrusture is in place...

Re: Noob IPv6 question

All of the examples and tutorials here seem to apply to using a tunnel.

Thats why I am posting. I cant find any info on doing this for a ISP that provides IPv6 native.

I used that same site and tried everything. Very typical. Scares novice users. My router firewall was completely secure. I played with tarpitting, that produced fun results. You gotta wonder what would happen if I just repeated the test over and over using tarpitting ? Would the auditmypc server get...
