EdgeRouter 4 IPv6 Setup

I’m archiving this information for future reference because I (or others) may need it. This was extremely helpful in getting AT&T’s allotted IPv6 subnet(?) (properly called: delegated prefix) setup in my EdgeRouter 4, although I wound up having to use the web interface and configuring the same settings within the Config section. Without further ado (or a whole lot of ado below) here is Bradley Heilbrun’s explanation.


Windows 7 Beta – An Initial Review

With permission, this is an email I received from a co-worker named Nathan Abbott, who sent me a quick run down of the improvements and drawbacks to Windows 7 Beta after testing it this morning. Sounds like there are still some things Microsoft needs to improve, like the TCP/IP network stack. But progress has surely been made from Vista.

Active Services

Memory Usage

Well I have spent a few hours with Windows 7 and here are my initial thoughts and feelings.

1.)  The network stack still needs work.  M$ implemented an enhanced TCP/IP stack and they still have bugs they need to work out of it.  File transfer times are still a bit sluggish.  I tested 10 MEG, 100 MEG and 4.0 GIG file transfers and XP still beats Windows 7.  I did notice that after turning off their IPV6 Helper service, files transferred a little faster.

2.)  There are still too many services that start on startup or have a delayed startup.  A base install starts with 38+ services on boot up.  I trimmed it down to 28.  I have attached screenshots [above].
