[fixed] problem browsing IPv6 websites


Question

+M2Ys4U

I've got an account at sixxs.net, have been assigned an IPv6 address, set up the tunnel using their AICCU commandline program.

I can nslookup an IPv6 domain (I'm testing using ipv6.google.com).

I can ping my default gateway's/PoP's IP (2a01:348:6:11e::1).

I can also ping (but only when I force ping to use IPv6 [ping -6]).

tracert also works (but again only when I force IPv6).

yet when I try and view http://ipv6.google.com both Firefox and IE7 come up with an error

Address Not Found
ipv6.google.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again.

network.dns.disableipv6 is false in about:config.

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium.

Any thoughts?

-------

Fixed, see post #8 for details

first things first, check dns is fine:

run nslookup then

set type=aaaa
ipv6.google.com

should give something like:

Non-authoritative answer:
ipv6.google.com canonical name = ipv6.l.google.com
ipv6.l.google.com	   AAAA IPv6 address = 2001:4860:0:1001::68

if that works, try a tracert6 and see if you get anywhere close to google

Does your router support IPv6? If it does, make sure it is turned on.

sounds like the transition to ipv6 will be quite a bit of work

ok, I fixed it.

I disabled Teredo using netsh

I removed *all* of the IPv6 addresses on my WLAN and the non-sixxs one on my tunnel using netsh

I then added a 6to4 equivalent to my IPv4 LAN address (2002:c0a8:169:: which equals 192.168.1.105) using netsh

I restared AICUU and it all worked!
