Deneb is available IPv6

Steps taken to get www.deneb.co.uk available via IPv6

  • Test www.deneb.co.uk via IPv6 validate – http://ipv6-test.com/validate.php
  • Raise support ticket with ISP to get native IPv6 address (this could be done with an IPv6 tunnel)
  • Apply IPv6 network configuration to server
  • Change firewall to allow http over IPv6
  • Add quad A record to DNS
  • Chnage Apache config to respond on IPv6 address hostname combo
  • Test that it now does validate

Why test first? its the test driven way, Test (fail), Enable, Test again, Re factor if necessary

Now Deneb is available IPv6 !
