For those who care, AOA is currently IPv6-capable. Aedan and I finished setting everything up about a month ago.

Arrow

For those interested in seeing if they are IPv6 ready, there is a test site for this with lots of info on this new up coming IP service.
Test your IPv6

Once it's done testing you'll see results such as the screenshot below if you & your ISP are ready for it...my ISP currently is not...

No, but latest updates mean we can now ban you, before you even click submit.

My cable connection probably isn't IPV-6 ready but I do have Windows Vista, 7, and Fedora which are all IPV-6 ready.
Do you think there will be a patch for Windows XP to support IPV-6?

Really, I never noticed a IPV-6 in the network connections with Windows XP
I'll look again... that would be cool

I see
No wonder I never saw it by default.
So I have to install it as long as I have Service Pack 3.
I may try this at home.
Thanks

I found another way to install IPV6 for Win XP SP3:
start..control panel..Network and Internet Connections..Network Connections, right click a connection ( I used Local Area Connection ) .. select prperties..Install..protocal..select
Microsoft TCP/IP version 6.. click ok.. done!
