Our NTP servers are now available over IPv6


#1

Our virtual and dedicated hosts have been supplied with IPv6 connectivity by default for some time now, and for all other users who haven’t had it configured by default it is very simple to ask for a range of IPv6 addresses to be added to your machine:

[ulist]
[*] IPv6 for Virtual & Dedicated Hosts
[/ulist]

We’re now beginning the slow process of making sure that our supplied services are accessible via IPv6 as well as via the native IPv4 addresses. As part of that work we made our NTP servers available via IPv6, so if you’re using IPv6 connectivity you should find that the following addresses each have AAAA records:

[ulist]
[] a.ntp.bytemark.co.uk
[
] c.ntp.bytemark.co.uk
[/ulist]

Similarly the “pool” address of “ntp.bytemark.co.uk” will now also return IPv6 records.
