Project Info

Project Name: IPv6 Connectivity for Infrastructure
Target Audience: IPv6-capable users
Expiration/Delivery Date (required): 12/31/2009

Description/Summary: Fedora Infrastructure services are not reachable via IPv6. This plan allows FI to serve both IPv4 and IPv6 users.


Project plan (Detailed):

  1. Discover and use native IPv6 connectivity if offered in each of our data centers.
    1. Telia is reported to have it
    2. Options: 6to4 gateway server, or 6to4 on each public-facing (static IP) server.
  2. Convert services one by one to serve IPv6 natively.
    1. Proxy Servers
    2. MirrorManager


Goals:


Specific resources needed

  • publictest instance in PHX for the 6to4 gateway and/or a proxy server which itself uses 6to4.


IPv6 Capabilities by Data Center

  • PHX - unknown
  • PHX2 - hardware capable, but native routing not configured, and no plans to enable.
  • telia - native IPv6 available, need address space delegations
  • tummy - none available. Request filed.
  • serverbeach - unknown
  • ibiblio - native IPv6 available, dynamic address assigned on ibiblio1 already.
  • BU - unknown
  • osuosl - planned by "end of summer". Check back in a few months.
