Q: How do I rejuvenate a proxy that is about to expire while my job is still running?

Q: Does Globus support IPv6?
A: GridFTP has previously been successfully tested to some extent with their experimental support for IPv6 (e.g. add -ipv6 option to globus-url-copy).
As part of Globus' investigation, the Globus team concluded that GRAM5 does not currently support IPv6. The Globus team are currently working with IGE and IGE's testbed resources to test this more thoroughly, including testing mixed mode IPv4/IPv6 networks which are crucial for any IPv4 to IPv6 transition period.
