14:09 Sock Knitting Challenge - Pair #4 »Jobo Designs

 

Better late than never... right?  I've been knitting away, but not keeping up with the blog.  So here I go - catching up!

These are my fourth pair of the year... small ones, but still nice ones!   They were completed in March. 

My three year old daughter wanted a pair, so I let her go into my stash and choose the yarn she liked best.  The finished socks go pretty much to her knees, and she loves them!  The yarn is Knitpicks Felici Self striping (why did they discontinue this yarn... it's awesome!)  They were knit on the usual 2.75mm needles I use, with 52 stitches around.  The cuff is twisted rib, and the heels are eye-of-partridge.

12:30 Notes to Self on IPv6 »ruk.ca from peter rukavina

Thanks to a nudge from my friend Dave Cairns, I’ve dipped my toe into the waters of IPv6, and I’m noting what I did here for future reference.

Enabled ICMP on my Bell Aliant-provided Actiontec R1000H router; this is done from the Firewall tab by enabling WAN PING mode.

Visited to https://www.tunnelbroker.net/ and registered for a free Tunnelbroker account.

Clicked Create Regular Tunnel in the left sidebar.

As IPv4 Endpoint (Your side), I entered the IP address that Bell Aliant assigned to my Actiontec R1000H router (it appears as “Modem IP Address” on the main status screen).

Selected the Toronto tunnel server and clicked Create Tunnel.

From my MacBook Air’s Terminal app:

sudo ifconfig gif0 tunnel 192.168.2.12 216.66.38.58
sudo ifconfig gif0 inet6 2001:470:1c:7f::2 2001:470:1c:7f::1 prefixlen 128
sudo route -n add -inet6 default 2001:470:1c:7f::1

The 192.168.2.12 IP address above is the LAN IP address of my MacBook Air.

In the MacBook Air’s System Preferences under Network | Wi-Fi | DNS, added IPv6 nameservers from the Tunnelbroker tunnel information page (2001:470:20::2 and 74.82.42.42), in addition to the IPv4 ones from Google that were already there.

That’s it.

At this point I could then visit http://www.test-ipv6.com/ and see the following:

Test you IPv6 Connectivity

And, from the Mac OS X command line:

# ping6 ns.upei.ca
PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) 2001:470:1c:7f::2 --> 2001:410:e000:903:1::1
16 bytes from 2001:410:e000:903:1::1, icmp_seq=0 hlim=56 time=77.641 ms
16 bytes from 2001:410:e000:903:1::1, icmp_seq=1 hlim=56 time=98.467 ms
16 bytes from 2001:410:e000:903:1::1, icmp_seq=2 hlim=56 time=65.694 ms
16 bytes from 2001:410:e000:903:1::1, icmp_seq=3 hlim=56 time=71.714 ms

I’m fairly certain this is all going to fall to pieces when my DHCP lease from Bell Aliant expires; by that time, though, I hope that Dave has read this far and is ready for the next dose of help.
