|And is this ever going to happen?|
I have been hearing "IPV6 is just on the horizon", "IPV4 is completely exhausted, it's only a matter of months", etc... for years now.
IPV4 exhaustion scare-mongering has been so slow recently one might easily have assumed that it was forgotten about or that the problem has been solved.
I am sitting here writing some security checks into a new website I am working on that makes sure that IPV4 addresses aren't hammering certain important parts of the site too quickly... and I can't help but wonder when this code will become obsolete due to full IPV6 integration.
Does anyone have any insight into the current situation of IPV6?
