IPv6

Linux has worked fine with IPv6 for years, but while in the UK I only had an IPv4 connection to the Internet, so I just ignored IPv6. In fact I disabled it on most of my machines to make my life easier.

Since moving to France, my Internet connection has dropped from a half decent VDSL connection at ~35 MBit/s to a more meagre ADSL2 connection at ~6 MBit/s. However I have gone from one static IPv4 address to one semi-static IPv4 and one semi-static IPv6 block. I've started to turn IPv6 back on and it has had some interesting results....!
