NEWS: there are no more IPv4 addresses left, no new devices can get on the internet, world panics.

Internet Providers: i guess it is time to switch to IPv6....nah we got a few more months.

NAT didn't make IPv4 popular.  It allowed it to last this long.  It has always been a stopgap measure and an annoying hack of one at that.

I wonder if IPv6 will get rid of the need for portforwarding?

I think it will switch to a sort of hybrid thing where you can forward a port to one IP, or open it for all IPs.

And don't forget all the nice QoS features that ISPs can use to make sure we are being good boys and girls.
