IPv6 is the successor of the well known Internet Protocol (IPv4) on which the entire Internet depends these days. IPv6 offers more IP-addresses (allowing more connected computers and other devices) and better authentication and encryption methods. M.C.G.V. Stack is the students' computer association of the University of Technology Eindhoven (TUE). We were one of the first groups to actively deploy IPv6 networks and we have been connected with the world-wide 6bone network since late 1998. On 12 October 2000 we started using official IPv6 production addresses: A SURFnet router in Eindhoven connects us with their national IPv6-backbone.
Nowadays practically all computers at Stack and many others beloging to Stack-members or located on different sites at the campus are talking IPv6 to each other and the rest of the world.
If you maintain a computer on the University Campus with IPv6 support and you want a uplink with the rest of the world, feel free to ask us. For more information, you can always contact us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. IPv6-aware laptops can be plugged in to a native IPv6 (auto-configuration) backbone at several places on the University campus:
