Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

Yes, just to confirm I'm up and running too.  Pings are working, test-ipv6.com gives me a 9 out of 10, with only the known 'gap' around BT's DNS (which isn't a real problem at the moment).

 

Thanks for the fix!

Hi All. Thanks for checking that and posting back to confirm it has been fixed. I'm sorry but I can't tell you what the exact problem was.

 

Cheers

John

As a matter of interest, what is that 'gap' about.

What problem could that cause?

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

The gap is that currently the BT DNS servers only have IPv4 address i.e., 81.139.56.100 and 81.139.57.100. A full implementation would have the DNS servers themselves with an IPv4 and IPv6 address so clients could send queries to them on either IPv4 or IPv6.

 

This is not an issue as an IPv4 DNS server will, when asked, return the IPv4 and IPv6 of the site you're trying to connect to. For example, the following is a lookup of www.facebook.com to one of the BT DNS servers on its IPv4 address, but as you can see the response is both the IPv4 and IPv6 address.

 

C:\Users\smf22>nslookup www.facebook.com 81.139.56.100
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  81.139.56.100

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    star-mini.c10r.facebook.com
Addresses:  2a03:2880:f11a:83:face:b00c:0:25de

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

Welcome to the forum.

I don't use one of those routers but you could have a look in the IPv6 configuration page(s) for something along these lines.

Native connection

 

DHCP_PD Enable

 

Auto Configuration Setting Stateless

 

Connect to DNS Server automatically Enable

 

Enable Router Advertisement Enable

 

 

What does the manual tell you to do?

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

Go to solution

Thank you for the reply. The manual says that the settings depend on what ISP requires, hence my question to BT.

The first choices on the IPv6 connection page relate to the connection type:
PPP
TSPC
AICCU
DHCPv6 client
static IPv6
6in4 Static Tunnel
6rd

These are all available as a first step.
