2012-04-30 A real "why do I still bother with legac ... 8 years ago
A real "why do I still bother with legacy IP" (and NAT) moment today. I tried to use the IRC DCC protocol to receive a file from someone and the client of the other party was running behind IPv4 nat. "Active" and "Passive" dcc failed. But we both can use IPv6 so I upgraded that IRC connection to v6 (I changed the OFTC serverlist to use irc6.oftc.net). This restored end to end connectivity and the file was transferred.
