Title: Could not grab the file via ....
Post by: owah on October 06, 2013, 03:24:42 PM
Hi,

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I added an AAAA record to my domain:

Code: [Select]
root@caotina:~# dig AAAA ipv6.etienne.pw

; <<>> DiG 9.8.4-rpz2+rl005.12-P1 <<>> AAAA ipv6.etienne.pw
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 365
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 4, ADDITIONAL: 8

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;ipv6.etienne.pw.               IN      AAAA

;; ANSWER SECTION:
ipv6.etienne.pw.        600     IN      AAAA    2a00:bd80:12::e

I'm also able to wget the file from another place:

Code: [Select]

HE doesn't appear to have a route:

Code: [Select]
Connected to route-server.he.net.
Escape character is '^]'.
route-server> sh ipv6 bgp 2a00:bd80::/32
% Network not in table

I guess i'll have to contact HE.NET support regarding this?

Or your provider. They appear to peer fine, just doesn't look like the route is propagating.

hmmmmmm a friend just told me that there apparently is a feud between he.net and cogent regarding ipv6 traffic. and since my provider only offers cogent ipv6... :||||

Not certain how Cogent is involved with that address space:

http://bgp.he.net/ip/2a00:bd80::

Neither of those networks are Cogent, and one of them directly IPv6 peers with HE.NET. Like I said, make certain your provider is getting it announced correctly.

Checking the transit provider SOFTplus (my provider) uses you can see that in IPv4 its HE and Cogent and in IPv6 its cogent only. So far ive been able to reach the IPv6 from a multitude of providers.

Anyhow, if i message my provider, what should I specifically ask for?

They peer IPv4 with HE. Yell at them to peer on IPv6. Tell them that you cannot reach portions of the internet via the connectivity they sold you.

my provider is now using HE IPv6 Transit, yet I can still not establish a connection? http://bgp.he.net/AS51395#_graph6

Might be a return path issue with your provider? HE sees the route now, but it stops in Zurich:

Code: [Select]
route-server> sh ipv6 bgp 2a00:bd80::/32
BGP routing table entry for 2a00:bd80::/32
Paths: (35 available, best #1, table Default-IP-Routing-Table)

pffffff i should really switch to another provider. I complained to them that they were using a singlehomed ipv6 (cogent) now suddenly its singlehomed HE and still nothing works properly. they also dropped their cogent backup route on ipv4, now ipv4 is singlehomed HE too.
