Re: [MirageOS-devel] [ANN] IPv6 on Mirage!


We really need to decide something about the V1/V2, but I'm still unsure what's the best thing to do. I'm happy to brainstorm in a room next week, with people interested by the topic and (ideally) physically present in Cambridge. The goal would be to review the options discussed on that list and propose a design which should improve the current state of things.

Dear all,

As some of you may know I have been working for the last month and a half on adding IPv6 support to Mirage.  I am pleased to announce that enough work has been done that we can now serve webpages using cohttp/conduit over IPv6.

If you have access to the IPv6 internet then check out the experimental server (a modified `static_website` from `mirage-skeleton`) at

(If it doesn't work the first time, just reload - there is be a bug somewhere that I haven't been able to trace yet.)

The relevant PRs are:

Things left to do (apart from some odds and ends on the protocol itself):

1. Testing/bug fixing
2. Decide what to do regarding the V1/V2 story.
3. Adapt the `mirage configure` tool (this is intertwined with 2.)
4. DNS support (unsure about the status of this one) ?
5. Update all the examples to work with the new signatures.

Longer-term, better abstractions for the network stack seem to be in order.

There is also a design document that I hope to complete soon and add to `mirage-tcpip`.

I will appreciate any and all comments/criticisms/suggestions/bug reports/etc, either personally, by mail, on the list, on GitHub, or any other way.


Best wishes,
