Submission + - Princeton University Blocks IPv6 on Wireless-> 1

cwolfsheep writes: In a move meant to provide "faster, more reliable wireless service," network administrators at Princeton University have begun filtering out IPv6 traffic on their wireless access points. OIT Support Services Director Steven Sather stated that since IPv6 is not in use at the university, the network traffic (generated largely by an influx of Apple hardware) is considered "wasted." It should be noted that recent Linux & BSD-based distributions, as well as Windows Vista and 7, all enable IPv6 support and/or use it to some degree.

  • ... that just makes more sense than, I don't know, taking their heads out of the sand and providing IPv6 connectivity. Glad to see Princeton preparing their students for the future! (cough)
