IPv6 growth is slowing and no one knows why. Let's see if El Reg can address what's going on

Marco Fontani

Especially when Reg is behind Cloudflare. Cloudflare make it as simple as ticking a box to enable IPv6.

You're half right. Enabling IPv6 on Cloudflare is indeed a flick of a button. Unfortunately there are still a few internal systems which wouldn't work when clients start sending them requests using an IPv6 address. In fact, we _had_ it enabled "for testing" on the old site, and that showed us we had a lot of things to fix before we could enable it on thereg also.

We have a branch which purportedly fixes everything IPv6 related on our systems, and I'm now in a position to properly test it.

So, Soon®
