I cannot get from my Tunnel Broker tunnel to Cogent's 2001:978:2:5e::17:1 and beyond. I've heard things haven't always been simple between Cogent and HE, but is there any hope that my little situation might be resolved anytime soon?

Thanks!

Unable to access a company that might very well be the #1 force against the free (as in liberty) and decentralized web that we have or once had.

Google is a robot or spider, and it doesn't allow a robot or spider to access it. Doesn't seem fair.

I suppose if HE didn't allow users to make new tunnels so easily they wouldn't consider all of the HE addresses to be potentially malicious. Are new tunnels assigned in numerical order, where old users have lower numbers?

On Android I've heard they're connecting to Google DNS server 8.8.8.8 in addition to what is in the network settings. This allows them to spy on DNS lookups and associate IP addresses with site visitors even when those sites don't have Google  advertising or tracking cookies. Is any such thing happening in the IPv6 world? With unique IP addresses, such tracking would work even better.

I had this issue from Las Vegas, it started as a captcha, then 403... would be nice if google could whitelist subdomains, or not be so aggressive on their network masks.  I have since moved to FL, and changed the tunnel endpoint, but first search to google gives me a captcha - too many of those, and you can't even get into google to file a complaint with google... I ended up forcing a ipv4 address in my local hosts file before; or using a computer that was over the WIFI router that didn't get the IPV6 DHCP information correctly forwarded.

I guess HE can't/won't put a block so they can be an allowed VPN to google?

Questions & Answers / Feature request: Add rate limi...
Last post by AntiLiberal - July 07, 2024, 09:02:00 PM
I would like to be able to rate limit the downstream connection. Limiting it to 20,000 packets per second or 5MB/sec would work for me. A way of remotely disabling the tunnel, such as by sending a special UDP packet out to the server should also work. That would have to be automated with a script.

Someone is doing a DoS attack which overloads my connection and I cannot connect to anything, even to configure the tunnel.

Unfortunately I have to turn off my tunnel for the time being or my connection could be down for as long as an hour at random times.

IPv6 on Routing Platforms / Re: Sophos XG Firewall setup, ...

Hi,

I have been away from Sophos for about three year but now I am back. I did a detour to pFSense.
Thanks for the input. I have now updated my old post with this new information. Perhaps it may be of use to someone in the future.

I am switching ISP in about a month and with a little luck they will support native IPv6 in my area. My current ISP's helpdesk doesn't even understand what it is...

IPv6 on Routing Platforms / ASUS RT-AX1800U - working IPv6...
Last post by vykeer - July 05, 2024, 03:15:46 AM
Hello!
I've been fighting with this issue for a few days, so I'm writing here, maybe somebody can help... I've got ASUS RT-AX1800U router, and that's what happens:

- when I set up tunnel directly in Windows 10 (as instructed in Example Configurations) with forwarding of protocol 41 enabled in my router configuration - everything works fine on that specific computer - it is quite fast, IPv6 pages are loading, pings are working, IPvFoo extensions shows '6' - that's great

- when I disable port forwarding on my router and use its internal IPv6 feature with routed /64 configuration, a mess happens... IPv4 works perfectly good, but in case of IPv6 - addresses are pingable, DNS resolves IPv6 addresses correctly, but speed of IPv6 sites and other services is horrible - 20kbps, max 200kbps.. yes kilobits per second.. something is downloading but I feel like in times of modems - even Google captcha can't properly load. It happens on every device connected to my router's Wifi.. Windows, Linux, MacOS

Does anyone suspects, what could be wrong?

General Questions & Suggestions / DNS issues?
Last post by crystalnet - July 04, 2024, 10:41:17 AM
he.net and all other affiliated domains are returning nxdomain for my resolver currently,
also all of my personal domains that i use dns.he.net as autorative are nxdomain.
is there a wide-spread issue thats known currently?

quad9 is also having issues:

$ dig in a he.net @8.8.8.8 +short
216.218.236.2
$ dig in a he.net @9.9.9.9 +short
$ dig in a he.net @1.1.1.1 +short
216.218.236.2

and since the whois has an update for today logged, did something go wrong here maybe that you are not aware of yet?

Updated Date: 2024-07-04T15:07:09Z

(i only was able to get on the forums by overwriting hostnames locally using my hosts file^^)

a login attempt to dns.he.net also fails with:

"DNS.he.net has experienced an error. Please try again in a few minutes."

Yeap. Actually, I have never tried with the trailing period, till now. It was just a typo when posting the question in here. Either way, error message stays the same.
