cyberformer Posted June 23, 2009 Share Posted June 23, 2009 I am persistent in my “obsession” that the IPV6 issue, is going to be the ultimate challenge for 9x users.I have heard a few of my fellow members----assure me, as well as the few others sharing my concerns,that there is no real problem, as there will be routers, and tunneling etc---to take care of such problems.I am still not quite comforted by any of the explanations though, and I am bringing this issue up again, since I’ve thought of a new scenario or two---which paints a rather dismal picture.First, if we believe that the IPV4 addresses are really going to eventually run out, that would mean,that if your 9x machine is not hooked up to the internet already---with an IPV4 address, you will not be able to get one (since there will not be any left)---thus routers, or no routers, tunneling or no tunneling----will not help at all, meaning you will be up the creek!The only option then for people setting up new 9x machines in the future (having no IPV4 address to rout or tunnel) will be to make use of some kind of IPV6 patch------!!!!I know that there is the so called TOOLNET 6 patch from a while back by Hitachi; and the Trumpet thing,But try to find them!I’ve gone to the Hitachi site, using the supposed links---and can find no thing!The group that made Trumpet, seems to have been taken over by others---and any info concerning their process for establishing IPV6 on Win 9x machines seems to no longer exist.I challenge anyone to find a link to either of these two options, that really proves useful (as in being able to actually download something).I think the only solution for those who in the future choose to use the 9x system---is for those with the know how, to come up with a real and working patch enabling IPV6 for WIN 9x.I know this is a “touchy” subject, but I feel it has not been tackled with enough of the ferocious resolve and determination I think is necessary.Can anyone address my fear?If you can prove I am quite wrong, and making an a** of myself for being so obsessed about this, Please! Please! have at it.I want to be proven quite wrong concerning my great worry!If, any of my fellow forum members, think this is as important an issue as I do---your views and possible solutions, are exceedingly welcome.
