Hola todos,
  Les reenvio este correo el cual I+D muy interesante.
  Lectura recomendada para todos, es bastante corto y especifico.

  Este es el link: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-sunset4-gapanalysis-00

  Les dejo dos problemas de los que habla:

   PROBLEM 1:  When an IPv4 node boots and requests an IPv4 address
               (e.g., using DHCP), it typically interprets the absence
               of a response as a failure condition even when it is not.

   PROBLEM 7:  Completely disabling IPv4 at runtime often reveals
               implementation bugs.  Hard-coded dependencies on IPv4
               abound, such as on the address assigned to the
               loopback interface.  It is therefore often operationally
               impossible to completely disable IPv4 on individual

  Dentro del I+D existen unas sugerencias para resolver estos problemas.

Reciban un abrazo,

Dear all,

IPv4 Sunsetting refers to completely turning off IPv4.

The following document deals with the gap analysis of "where are we"
and "what is left" to be able to sunset.

I would be interested to hear from the list their thoughts on what is
missing, to actually achieve the IPv4 sunset.
