What with all the news about IPV4 addresses running out on the public internet, it got me thinking about my internal setup.

Ok, first off, I really don’t need to run IPV6 internally at the office or at home – we don’t have that many devices lurking on our networks, but it would be an interesting test case for our network linked products.

However, we have been thwarted.

Our Cisco router happily will work on IPV6 after having latest IOS images loaded.

But our network printers will not. Bugger.

Ironically, both printers are HP and one isn’t even that old.

Come on HP. Wake up and smell IPV6.
