      Why couldn't they just have prepended three more digits to ipv4?

        How do you determine if an ip address has 32 bits or 40 bits?

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Not him but they could just assume every IP is 40 bits and the old "IPv4" ones happen to end in 00000000.

            That's actually not a bad solution tbh. Still, why stop at 40? Might as well use 64 to fill the word boundary

            I mean yeah, but if you don't fill the full word, you're either wasting the excess space or are constantly trying to figure out how to pack data to fill it

            You shouldn't manually type them brainlet. This is problematic only as you don't know how to program

        You'd need to completely rewrite the IP stack of every device to support that. So why not add so many more digits that the next change won't be ever?

          They would have achieved the exact same result by using 8 bytes instead of 16.

      Google's IPv6 usage is at 45%, we are just 5% away from the critical mass of being majority ipv6. The tipping points are Governments and major cloud providers having ipv6 mandates. Soon there will be a major ipv6 only website which will further encourage adoption.

        Why would there, midwit? All major websites are rich enough to hoard IPv4 addresses forever. Not like you can take IPv4 blocks off rich people. They can afford them and they can afford extending their contracts to own them.

    NAT solved this problem long ago, but people are forcing IPv6 down our throat anyway. Makes tracking and monitoring your online activity easier I guess.

      Well they're trying that's for sure but no one gives a shit. ipv6 gays are the gnome gays of the networking world. Extremely vocal and in 20 years have achieved nothing.

    I'll say what I've said before.

    IPv6 is inevitable. Even CGNAT has its limits, with governments restricting it due too many computers hiding behind 1 ip address. The internet of things and the internet of phones are getting bigger. With migration of landlines to VoIP every landline phone now has an ip address which even if you don't use it at home will still be used in offices and call centres. Also Google and Facebook are pushing very hard to get poorer countries online to convert them into first world countries technology wise. Even in remote villages there are now satellite links which all have ip address requirements. The census of internet connected devices estimate there are 1.5 billion traditional PCs, 5 billion smartphones, 10 billion dumb phones and over 30 billion IoT connected devices. These all require IP addresses and CGNATs are overflowing so IPv6 is being rolled out faster than you think. It will be a domino effect. Once one major cloud provider charges a premium for IPv4, the competition for cheaper IPs will overwhelm other providers, forcing them to either raise prices, acquire ip blocks from increasingly sketchy sources or to just flip the IPv6 switch.

    You will live in the ::1, and you will be happy.
