Iâ€™m visiting the in-laws in Texas this weekend, and I use the SSTP VPN in Windows Server 2008 R2 to connect home (my client is Windows 7, but it works just as well with Vista). Never had many problems with it up until this weekend.
Apparently, on Friday, we had a power cut back at the house, and our network connectivity is still not happening. Iâ€™ve asked the house-sitter to restart the servers and routers where possible, but itâ€™s still not there.
So I went online to Comcast, to track down whether they were aware of any local outage. Sadly not, so weâ€™ll just have to wait until I get home to troubleshoot this issue.
What I did see at Comcast, though, got me really excited:
So I canâ€™t but be excited that my local ISP, Comcast, is looking to test IPv6 support. I only hope that itâ€™ll work well with the router we have (and the router we plan to buy, to get into the Wireless-N range). Last time I was testing IPv6 connectivity, it turned out that our router was not forwarding the GRE tunneling protocol that was used by the 6-in-4 protocol used by Hurricane Electricâ€™s Tunnel Broker.
Who knows what other connectivity issues weâ€™re likely to see with whatever protocol(s) Comcast is going to expect our routers and servers to support? I canâ€™t wait to find out
