IPv6 Support

Hi all,

I'm new to this list and have read through the archives regarding this
topic, but I'm wondering what would be involved in adding IPv6 support
to wackamole? I'm willing to do the work myself (or with help, if anyone
is willing), but I'd like to get a feel for how much work this would entail.

-Mike

I posted a question about ipv6 support on this list as well quite a
while back, but never got a reply. I think this list is quite dead..
(even though I have hope and am still subscribed.)

It's kind of dead. I think wackamole is a good idea but incompletely
implemented and insufficently reviewed and the original authors seem
fairly uninterested in further development. I think you're better off
looking at things like CARP, pfsense and the Linux Virtual Server
project to accomplish the goals that wackamole appears to be aiming at.

I, for one, was really looking to wackamole to solve my HA requirements
(and it was described in a book about scalable internet architectures as
well).

But for the reasons above, I chose CARP on FreeBSD (to HA my Squid
machines).

I had briefly considered trying to re-implement wackamole in Perl, but
balked at the amount of work I forecast for doing cross-platform
interface manipulation.

* This list is dead, buried, decomposed, with bones turning to powder...

* The fully part is that they send out reminders for the subscribers!

Thanks for your replies, everyone. If wackamole is dead, I may have to
look into some of these other solutions.
