Submission + - SPAM: IPv6 faces trial by fire tonight at IETF meeting

alphadogg writes: The Internet engineering community will be eating its own dog food tonight. For one hour, the 1,250 network experts at the Internet Engineering Task Force meeting in Philadelphia will be able to access the Internet only through IPv6. The IETF created IPv6 in the mid-1990s, but this upgrade to the Internet's main communications protocol has not yet been widely deployed — even by the technology's biggest proponents here. IETF Chair Russ Housley explains tonight's plan and addresses the long term in Network World interview.
