Title: [SOLVED] Can't ping ipv6 from outside (Enthusiast Test Failure)
Post by: xiaomao5 on July 09, 2011, 07:30:37 AM
I have set up a tunnel (but not he.net as I am NAT'ed). When I try the test. Everything works fine. I can grab this file without any problems: http://xiaomao5.cz.cc/2k6t62gkqb.txt. But it seems like the testing server can't grab it.(The site is IPv6-only and they can't grab thru IPv6?) I am running IIS7.5 on Windows 7.

Note: I did the test, along with administrator, with Nginx, but I still can't ping my tunnel from outside. The ping problem is windows firewall.

Well what I can tell you is that is not open on port 80, so kind of hard to grab anything

check it yourself

I show you resolving to this

I tried to ping my IP from outside, it doesn't work so it's the tunnel broker's fault. I'll try to fix that.

Did it with nginx on IPv6. This means I can still develop PHP with IIS on IPv4.

"I tried to ping my IP from outside, it doesn't work so it's the tunnel broker's fault."

How is not able to ping your IPv6 address the tunnel brokers fault?  Is the tunnel up?  If so then I would guess your firewall is blocking any traffic on your ipv6 network that your not allowing.  Or its not listening even for stuff like 80.

I think SixXS blocked ICMP or didn't provide it at all. At least I can't ping it at http://www.berkom.blazing.de/tools/ping.cgi?STR=2001%3A4830%3A1100%3A122%3A%3A2.

Last I knew, SIXXS was like HE and didn't block anything

I don't know what the problem is, but I just can't ping my host from outside. However I can access the server through HTTP and SMTP from outside.

Turn off your firewall and try

Yeah I don't see a "tunnel" broker blocking stuff - that would clearly be counter intuitive to what a broker does ;)  I for sure do not see them blocking something as useful and required in troubleshooting as icmp.

What is your OS or firewall, windows for example blocks ICMP out of the box and you have to enable it.

That's probably the reason, but how to do it on Windows??
