Not Forgotten Still Here :)

Hey everyone, yet again I’m apologising for not keeping this blog up to date, rest assured there is good reason behind my absence and you’ll all see some cool tutorials, news and a great new service launching soon, so keep checking back and air your technolove!!! 🙂

 

Problems, Updates, Projects & More!

So you’ve probably wondered why i went from posting 3 times a day to not posting at all. I’ve been pretty busy recently with exams, jobs, personal-issues and so on. Few bits of news regarding the project. I’ve moved house, therefor am going to migrate everything thats using UKERNA over to HE.NET purely as they seem to be much more stable, and I can use 6over4 🙂 Also i am working on something you are all gonna like, just gimme time and i’ll have it sorted 🙂 need to buy a more powerful server first heh 🙂

For now peace! and stay tuned for whats coming next 🙂

ETA: 2 weeks

 

Server Re-Location

Hey everyone, i moved everything from where it was about 5 miles down the road, slight change in ipv4 addressing, (1 digit) but ipv6 addressing stays the same, let me know if any services are not working correctly 🙂 peace x

 

Fixed: Connectivity Issues

If any of you have been recently experiencing connectivity issues with the site or problems with zones generated using the zone builder, these bugs have been now rectified.

The zone builder was not specifying a $TTL correctly, Also as all of my zones are generated here, my bind9 stopped working properly. All fixed now, sorry for any inconvenience caused 🙂

 

UPDATED: IPV6 Reverse Zone Builder

Hey guys, another update tonight! Thanks to a LOT of help from rewt in #ipv6 on efnet, i’ve managed to eleminate most bugs from the zone builder, if you had problems before, try it again and it should be fine. Im also thinking about creating a hosted dns solution, leave your thoughts in the comments 🙂 until then, check out the new and improved IPV6 Reverse Zone Builder

 

Site IPV6 Outtages

Hey guys, you may have noticed yesterday from around 16:43 BST to 21:18 BST today, the site was inaccessible using IPV6, this also affected the IRCD, however other services remained normal with secondary IPV6 connectivity. In future the outtages will be less, and in this case, were the fault of UKERNA and not myself :). Well everything is back to normal now, so enjoy!

 

IPV6 Reverse Zone Builder for BIND

Two services launched in 1 Day! Here I bring you something I did on impulse after many people seem to be struggling to setup IPV6 reverse zones, i’ve put together a simple zone building script which will generate all the information you need for BIND automatically! At the moment it only supports /64’s and is a bit error prone, but i think it will suffice. Soon I will perfect it and offer zone hosting services here for people. Until then you can check it out here and setup your reverse zone!

 

The IPV6 Looking Glass Tester

As part of the services i’m trying to offer the IPV6 community, i’ve launched a Looking Glass in the BETA stage, this allows users to check their ipv6 connectivity using ping6 traceroute and check their reverse DNS records using the PTR function. I hope it’s useful to you all, please be patient with some of the functions such as traceroute as they can be slow, i’ll move it all over to an AJAX based model soon, but for now enjoy testing your connectivity! You can view the live working version here

Welcome everybody!

Well, i’ve moved all of my ageing 450mhz dell’s into oblivion now, replaced by my home-built quad core hypervisor! so you should notice some performance improvements. Maybe thats also why i’ve changed from HTML + Nano to WordPress…

Anyway, there will be more coming soon, but for now… hold tight!
