Hi all,..

Firstly i don't know which forum this message goes in , but i'm writing it here :roll:

In 1 of our projects, we record client IP address in a database table having varchar(15).

Now i am not really sure if we are still with 32bit IP address or 64bit IP address??
Any ideas when they would make it 64bit ??

Appreciate your ideas

Major IPv6 announcements

* In 2003, Nihon Keizai Shimbun (as cited in CNET Asia Staff, 2003) reported that Japan, China, and South Korea claimed to have made themselves determined to become the leading nations in Internet technology, which would partially take the form of jointly developing IPv6, and completely adopting IPv6 starting in 2005.
* ICANN announced on 20 July 2004 that the IPv6 AAAA records for the Japan (.jp) and Korea (.kr) country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) nameservers became visible in the DNS root server zone files with serial number 2004072000. The IPv6 records for France (.fr) were added a little later. This made IPv6 operational in a public fashion.

Thx Antonio Giovanni!!

Currently we are doing database designing of a project. I will make the column size to varchar(50).

My blood is tested +ve for Java.
