Re: IPv6 on the Internet and IPv4 inside

No, that is an absurdity. The few remaining big boys who run the network could easily do it with IPV4 between each other. Ordinary office users can mostly manage with a local net, e.g. 10.x.y.z, or IPV6 to make their system impenetrable to system engineers, hackers, ... Shopping, banking, access to el Reg, ... are all done by name, i.e. by DNS. It should be invisible to the user whether DNS goes via IPV4 or IPV6.
