This table gives an overview of the various technologies used and sub-projects that run in the SixXS project.
For a historical overview of the SixXS PoP code see the SixXS History page.
We of course accept new wishlist items, thus if you have any, don't hesitate to submit them to the forum or through our feedback channels.
Implementation and moving from Wishlist/Beta to production status of these items all depend on the factor called time.
If there was unlimited amounts or more time for us, but not for the rest of the world then these features would be there quicker, unfortunately that is not the case, thus it all depends on having a bit of time to create them.
Items listed as "Production" are fully supported and should have an ASAP turn-around-time on getting fixed.
Unfortunately we can't guarantee any ETAs.
|AICCU||Production||Automatic IPv6 Connectivity Client Utility: Tool to automatically configure IPv6 connectivity on a variety of platforms and it provides AYIYA and heartbeat protocol support|
|AYIYA||Production||Anything in Anything: used mainly for IPv6 in IPv4 UDP and thus NAT-crossable tunnels|
|BGP on the PoPs||Wishlist||Border Gateway Protocol: Allows one to use multiple tunnels for a single /48, even announcing separate /64s from that block.
These announcements will only be used internally on the PoP though and won't appear on global BGP.
The downstream client will only get a 'default' route, not a full feed as with the amount of clients it would become very heavy to update everyone when there is a route change in the DMZ.
Next to that fact that the PoPs themselves don't have BGP connectivity upstream.
|Forum||Production||Your friendly forum|
|GRH||Concluded||Ghost Router Hunter : used for reporting on the IPv6 BGP routing status and issues that it finds|
|Heartbeat||Production||Protocol for getting the a tunnel to be pointed to your current location|
|IPv6Gate||Production||IPv6/IPv4 Website Gateway|
|Multicast||Beta; requires ecmh to have MBGP support to properly connect to Renater and thus m6bone.||Allows one to setup Multicast connectivity to others on the Internet.
Multicast is available on some PoPs but isn't global on most due to this.
|NTP Servers||Production||Publicaly available monitored NTP Servers|
|New signup Procedure||Wishlist||New way signups are done, users can update, forum usage etc|
|SixXSd||Production||The SixXS Daemon that is the software that runs on the PoPs|
|TIC||Production||Tunnel Information & Control Protocol: Protocol for retrieving Tunnel information and optionally controlling it|
|TSP for AICCU||Alpha; Internal testing of AICCU||Tunnel Setup Protocol: like TIC, but XML based and can't be used to control tunnels or subnets and per default misses functionality in the client to be completely useable by SixXS PoPs, but it does allow AICCU to be used for TSP protocol based brokers|
|Ticket Tracker||Production||Got a problem? Report it in the Ticket Tracker (of course with adequate documentation)|
|Traffic Statistics||Production||How much traffic are the PoPs doing?|
|Website||Production||The Web User Interface of SixXS|
