Today i had the pleasure to unpack our brand spanking new Color Laserprint from HP.

I knew when i ordered it that it would have IPv6 support. After i connected it and started it up i noticed it allready had gotten an IPv6 address from the RA in our network. Below are some screens from the web interface:

After that i tried to get it setup up in my ubuntu 9.04. But no matter what i tried it would only work over IPv4. I think cups is to blame here. Allthough i cant confirm this yet.

After rebooting to Windows 7 beta and adding the printer i didnt see if it used IPv6 or IPv4, so i gave it a big file to print and did a netstat. And guess what! You guessed it righ! it used IPv6 to make sure my pages got printed. Oh man those printed pages never looked better ;-)
