IPv6 support on alouche.net

[Edit: IPv6 is now directly provided over cloudflare proxies - 2400:cb00:2048:1::c71b:872b]

Hello,

This is just to announce that the blog is now available through IPv6. To be more precise through proto41 as this is just an experiment.

[[email protected] ~]$ host alouche.net alouche.net has address 69.72.186.60

alouche.net has IPv6 address 2001:470:1f07:a4e::2

[[email protected] ~]#ip -6 route sh xxxx:xxx:xxxx:xxxx::/64 via :: dev t-ipv6  proto kernel  metric 256  mtu 1480 advmss 1420 hoplimit 4294967295 2001:470:1f07:a4e::/64 dev eth0  proto kernel  metric 256  mtu 1500 advmss 1440 hoplimit 4294967295 fe80::/64 dev eth0  proto kernel  metric 256  mtu 1500 advmss 1440 hoplimit 4294967295 fe80::/64 via :: dev t-ipv6  proto kernel  metric 256  mtu 1480 advmss 1420 hoplimit 4294967295 ff00::/8 dev eth0  metric 256  mtu 1500 advmss 1440 hoplimit 4294967295 ff00::/8 dev t-ipv6  metric 256  mtu 1480 advmss 1420 hoplimit 4294967295 default dev t-ipv6  metric 1024  mtu 1480 advmss 1420 hoplimit 4294967295 (tunnel IP has been obfuscated)

Nginx (the webserver serving this blog) has been recompiled to support IPv6 and is now serving requests for this domain on both IPv4 and IPv6.

Cheers, Ali
