quick ipv6 question(for people who go on efnet)


i asked this question in the efnet.org forums, but no one has answered yet, so i'm going to try and ask this here.. well the problem is, last night, my IRC clients just pinged out from irc6.qeast.net, and i've been trying to reconnect to that server and irc.aloha.net, with no success at all.. i can connect to irc.ipv6.homelien.no, but the host doesn't resolve at all..so what i'm wondering is, would it be my tunnel broker, that is causing this problem, or the server? because other people seem to be connected to the server fine.. if anyone's had this problem, please let me know.. and if this thread happens to not belong in this forum, my apologies.

Does your default dns server handle ipv6?

yup, i've had ipv6 working since september.. i mean, it can connect to the homelien.no server, but that server doesn't resolve hostnames, which is crappy in my opinion.. i've tried asking Opers/Admins on those servers, but they're always idle for like a week straight..

You'll eventually need to find an ipv6 capable dns server..
Good news is that you can track back from a root server...
http://www.viagenie.com/en/ipv6/dnsrs/utilisation.shtml & http://www.wcug.wwu.edu/lists/6bone/.../msg00022.html have some more info...

yeah, i have two ipv6 capable dns servers, i actually think the problem might be the efnet server itself. Because today it had connected for a brief minute, but with a lag of 100+ seconds, so i tried to reconnect and it's still not connecting, just stalling when it says "connecting to server".. I emailed the admin of the server, so i'm just waiting on a response.. hopefully it's not my end.. heh..
