Deprecation of ip6.int Scheduled for 1 June 2006

Posted: Thu, 02 Mar 2006

In August 2005, RFC 4159 Deprecation of ip6.int was published as Best Current Practice. This RFC noted that maintenance of ip6.int is no longer required and that the Regional Internet Registries adopt a schedule for cessation of ip6.int. All the RIRs have agreed to deprecate ip6.int on June 1, 2006. Further note that ARIN no longer modifies any of the zones it administers under ip6.int effective 7 December 2005.
