Re: Overly complicated
"They have made IPv6 overly complicated, it's like you have to know more or less everything, before you start with the stuff, otherwise you'll end up having a network which might work, but you don't know why - and if you connect it to the internet you can't hide behind a NAT'd firewall - which is really really bad."
Well...there's a problem right there. Why does it have to be a NAT'd firewall. Why can't it be a straight-up firewall?
"And don't get me started on the notation, I've entered thousands of IPv4 address on my keyboard, on a numeric keyboard everything is there 0..9, and a '.' - everything which is needed."
IPv6 addresses CAN be entered in decimal, too, WITH the standard period notation. That's why the bracket notation: it helps to distinguish which is which. Hex notation is simply easier to read for the longer addresses and allows for the double-colon shorthand, but the spec DOES accommodate.
