I have a IPv4-only debian server with virtualization enabled and a couple of VN's running happily.
I asked for additional IPs from my provider, because I wanted to migrate existing site from another physical server into a VM, yet I wanted to have totally separate address for it, so it doesn't get associated with the rest of the stuff hosted from the same server.
Their answer was something along the lines that IPv4 addresses are a scarce now, not to be given out lightly, and that RIPE needs a few questions answered before they let me have those IPs. One of their questions is whether or not have I considered running whatever-I-was-going-to-run-via-requested-ips using IPv6 address instead, which got me thinking...
- If I opt for hosting a IPv6-only website, will the site still be globally reachable by all customers? Something tells me that the short answer is "no"...
- Are there any pitfalls I'd need to watch out for when implementing real (not tunneled) IPv6 addresses inside of one of my bridged virtual machines?
