I am seeing the same issue with e-mail.

With Thunderbird and Firefox, a workaround is to set:


in the configuration editor (Tools->options->general-> "advanced config"; about:config respectively).  Of course, if you already have domains in this list, just append these. 

This will force the DNS lookups for these domains to request only IPv4 addresses, while continuing to use IPv6 elsewhere.  (Assuming you aren't on an IPv6-only machine...)

I don't use other Yahoo! services, but if you do, you may have to add more domains to the list.

Getting Yahoo! (and other large domains) to fix things like this is extremely difficult to impossible.  They have so many layers of useless "virtual assistant", script-limited humans, and other barriers that finding a technically savvy human is an exercise in frustration. 

Hopefully, at some point this will percolate up to someone who'll fix it.  Maybe the latest new owners will help.  Hope springs eternal.

Both ways work.

Let's say I have the following:,,

Can I put all 3 under the same top level ( zone?

If not, is the only method to create 2 separate zones in HE's DNS?
1 for, 1 for, 1 for (under

@cholzhauer Well, there's also the WHOIS entry. It's not only external GeoIP databases. Difficult to analyze without knowing the prefix.

Sorry, wrong category and I've isolated the problem to my unifi router.

You can't change it, it has to come from Intel or HE

I have created the 6in4 to get some practice in IPv6.

Generally works well, but I found the following problem:

I'm from Poland. My endpoint for tunnel is Warsaw. But my IPv6 pool is from ... I'm not sure, from Ukraine?
As a result I cannot download drivers from Intel's sites using IPv6 because of export compliance restrictions :(

When I'm trying to download something I'm redirected to:
After disabling IPv6 works as expected.

How to change my location identification? Is it possible?

Or MTU? What does a traceroute6 yield? No problem here from my end.

Started yesterday. All sites hosted by Netlify via IPv6 are just hanging. Not sure where the problem might lie, if it's the tunnel service or one of netlify's upstreams. They did have a seemingly unrelated upstream routing problem today, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's at their end.

Looks like our rwhois wasn't responding correctly. It should be now, so ideally all those 3rd party systems that make up their databases, update.
