Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Nope, it's really not any easier; I just set mine up last week. What made it really difficult was that when you google "dd-wrt ipv6" you get a lot of different answers, and none of them are quite correct with current firmware. It took me a while to poke around enough and understand what was going on behind the scenes before I got it working the way I wanted.
(the other frustrating part was that apparently the broadcom-wl wireless driver I was using on my notebook does not recognize IPv6 multicast packets, so I spent two days trying to figure out why i wasn't getting router advertisements and why, when I gave myself a static IP, it stopped working a few minutes later -- my notebook didn't see the neighbor requests and never bothered to advertise itself to the network.)
It's pretty nice once it's working though; even my iphone is on IPv6 when I'm at home, much to my surprise. And since someone will probably ask; I'm using Hurricane Electric's free tunnel broker service.
Definitely a good choice; I just picked one up last week because I wanted IPv6 and my old Linksys only had 2 MB of flash. With the 8 MB in the Netgear I was able to load the entire "mega" build of dd-wrt and get pretty much anything I could want. For complex setups the importance USB support should not be overlooked either; the dd-wrt firmwares only support a 32k flash configuration partition and complex configurations can easily overrun this. When I bought the Netgear I slapped an old 1 gig thumbdrive on the back of the router and use it to store things like my OpenVPN certs that wouldn't fit in the 32k config flash.
Everyone gets 18quintillion addresses.... sounds like a plan to run the world out of IP's and start designing IPv7 ASAP!
Yes because we all saw how well "protocol version 7' worked out in Serial Experiments Lain
Your history is off too. The VMS roots are even on their face only very lightly there (no code, they just hired a kernel team composed significantly of ex-VMS kernelfolk and some aspects of the VMS design went in), the BSD roots are hardly there at all, and the OS/2 roots were predominant.
Also, if you shift each letter in VMS one letter forward in the alphabet you get....WNT
Be careful, it might violate the FB TOS. And then the feds would try to give you a hole new meaning to casual sex.
The Feds only care about the hole that is involved.
Trust me, on Chatroulette it's the users that have been exposing themselves.
This is exactly the thought that came into my head after reading the headline.
