Re: Why does this stuff need to update ?

"Yes every lawnmower, toothbrush and toilet to have a unique IPv6 address and be individually accessible from t'internet with only a perfectly configured free modem from crap-cable-provider(tm) to secure it."

Well, *my* network is connected to a Catalyst 4506 switch routing internal traffic, appropriate firewall in between and a *real* router, configured by myself, to the crap-cable-provider(tm).

The negotiations to actually succeed in doing so was far less than negotiating with the Taliban.

Both, a regrettable experience in my real life.
