No, it's because neither need to do it. If they did the apparent
catch-22 would be fixed

As I asked before - has ANYONE done this before? ie. fully
dualstacked to customers? Or is it still theory?

We have ADSL users with v4 and v6, they mostly
use low end Ciscos, 837 and such (cheap on ebay so
for the tech user base it's not too hard)

Cheap retail CPE adding v6 by default would help.

It's not so far if you don't quote the entire message

I am beginning to be worried that no one [has|is willing to divulge]
that they have accomplished this . One would think that someone would
at least pipe up just for the bragging factor .

The thread seemed long and noisy enough already without everyone
doing a me too.

We did it, to see if we could and because we have like
minded users wanting access. I know there are others.


Reading between the lines, nobody just wants to know THAT you've got it
working. We want to know HOW you got it working. What protocols and policies
were implemented on what hardware for what kind of user base?
