I have been working as a Network Engineer and Systems Administrator in ISP/Telecommunications networks since 1996. I have extensive experience the BGP, OSPF, MPLS, IPv6, VoIP, ATM, DSL, QoS and many other TLAs.

I am married with a son and three dogs. I enjoy skateboarding, cycling, reading, music and pondering on the future of networking.

comment What are some good, IP Address Management solutions for IPv6?
In your opinion, how credible are these solutions? Presentations / demos I have seen have been very lacking on detail on the IPv6 side of these products and I get the feeling that a lot of it is vaporware.

comment How to know if a DNS update is taking too long?
Which dig has no answer section? a.gtld-servers.net, the authoritive server for your new registrar, or your local resolving name server? If 1, and the whois lists your new registrar then ask the new registrar to check. Likewise if 2, also contact your new registrar. If 3 you may have a negative cache result which you will either need to wait to expire or flush the server cache ("rndc flush" on bind)
