Title: HE DNS Whitelisting
Post by: cholzhauer on November 22, 2011, 05:50:51 AM
I know many people here are pointing DNS lookups for google.com at ordns.he.net so they can take advantage of the white-listed Google IPv6 records.  I'm also pointing lookups for www.facebook.com at it so I get the AAAA records for that site.

I'm wondering if there are other sites that are white-listed that people don't know about; is there a list of white-listed domains that are served up by ordns.he.net?

I wasn't either until I saw it on one of the IPv6 mailing lists one day

Give it a try

Code: [Select]
[carl@mars ~]$ host www.facebook.com
www.facebook.com has address 69.171.224.40
www.facebook.com has IPv6 address 2620:0:1c00:0:face:b00c::

Those would be the 2 we've worked with for white-listing. If we get any more, that don't mind being announced, we'll let users know.

so I added a zone to my recursor for "facebook.com", and forward it to HE dns, like I do with google and youtube, this is sufficient?

And what about fbcdn?

I only know of it for www.facebook.com, not any of their CDN stuff.
