Re: IVP4, IVP6 Ehhh

Yea! Remembering passwords is bad enough. I can remember my IPV4 IP address and a few others.

I need brain training to fix an IVP6 in my head. I think this is the main reason people hane not taken it up; reading out and IVP6 address over the phone would leed to errors. It will always have to be copy and paste and not all routers accept that or have a method to retrieve an address fro the web say. Perhaps to make it human every IPV6 address will have to have a DNS name!
