isatapd package for android

I created and published an android app that bundles my ISATAP client daemon and provides a configuration front end. To run the binary on android, it requires root access, i.e. a rooted device or phone.

Screenshot_2013-09-26-10-41-13On my Galaxy S3 with Cyanogenmod 10.2 I successfully get a IPv6 address using the app. 😀

If you have a rooted phone and an ISATAP infrastructure close by, please feel free to give it a try:

The app is open source, with code being available on GitHub: https://github.com/shlusiak/isatapd-android

The source tree also contains a pre-compiled isatapd binary to be used in your own distribution or scripts.

google.cn in IPv6 world

Google China recently added AAAA records to it’s domains:

# host www.google.cn
www.google.cn has address
www.google.cn has IPv6 address 2a00:1450:4001:c01::a0

Google China does not offer search results through google.cn anymore since March 2010, redirecting their users to google.com.hk, which does not have AAAA records enabled.

Fortunately maps.google.cn still is available, generating lots of IPv6 traffic:

# host maps.google.cn
maps.google.cn is an alias for ditu.google.cn.
ditu.google.cn has address
ditu.google.cn has IPv6 address 2a00:1450:4001:c01::a0

This gives hope for this year’s World IPv6 Launch Day, June 6th, 2012. 🙂

Homepage over IPv6

On June 8th, 2011 my webhoster participated on the World IPv6 day, making my homepage temporarily IPv6-enabled. Shortly after they went productive, so all my subdomains, the homepage, this blog and even the ftp have IPv6 records enabled by default.

www.saschahlusiak.de has address
www.saschahlusiak.de has IPv6 address 2a00:1158:0:300:8e72::1

Only the email servers don’t run IPv6 yet, but I’m sure that’ll come. Welcome to the future. 🙂
