I tried it and it timed out for me too (twice).

Why would a 16-bit boundary be necessary?  IPv6 reverse zones have 4-bit boundaries.....

I'd like to delegate an IPv6 /56 subnet to HE, but I'm not sure if HE supports that since it's not aligned on a 16 bit boundary.  If I delegate the /56, and then create zones for some of the included /64 subnets, would that work, or is there another way?

can someone please try

when I do this on the machine that is my tunnel-end, no problem,
if I do this on any machine that has an IPv6 from the routed /64 prefix,
then I get massive problems - timeouts, ...

with any other site of my knowledge I haven't this problems;

the admin of this site tells me that there is a MTA setting problem on my side ...

Unfortunately, the url seems to have stopped working altogether, now over ipv4, which makes updating dynamic ip messier.

Is this a known service issue?

As opposed to running your own nat64 setup, with 100% control over it, and not having to make your traffic traverse networks it doesn't need to, thus reducing overhead?

Technically, you do need NS records in the parent zone for the child zone, but when both zones are hosted on the same name servers, DNS programs generally shortcut the lookup through the parent and directly serve the child.  If the parent and child zones are on different servers, the NS records for the child are required in the parent zone for the former to be found.

In my zones, I do delegate even when both zones are on the same servers, and it works without error -- as it should.  NS records are meant to be in both the zones they define and that zone's parent.

Has anyone asked support about this?

In short:
1. Just add the subdomains in the apex zone.
2. Make sure you do NOT have NS records for your subdomain in the apex zone.

Support said:
"In general, there's no need to create a zone for a subdomain.  The zone for the apex domain can contain records for subdomains, sub-subdomains, etc."
But then
"Actually, I have to correct myself: while you can use the method I described to add a subdomain's zone, this results in undefined behavior.  RFC dictates that nameservers not delegate subdomains to themselves.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Right now you're getting "BAD (HORIZONTAL) REFERRAL" results, which is a common consequence."

So I wondered, why are my subdomains not resolving? Its because i had the subdomain NS records setup in the apex zone!!! Once I removed my NS records (for, or the subdomain i wanted to add) my records started to resolve!

I'm having problems setting this up too. I kept adding a subdomain but i keep getting an error

Zone failed validation test. ERROR: Delegation was not found. Please delegate to ns1, ns2, ns3, ns4 and then retry. ( /

Eventually this worked! I'm not sure what helped but i was still in the process of moving the main domain from my old host, so i pointed the delegation back to the "old" dns servers, which had an SOA record for this sub-domain. Perhaps that's what allowed the creation? Not sure...

I must have tried adding this a few dozen times while experimenting and eventually it worked and now I have an SOA in and this subdomain works fine.

However, i cannot get this to work for any other domains (they never had any subdomains). I have NS records created in the main domain, for example, but i still cannot create any subdomains...

So what is the proper way to do this? Is this documented anywhere in a wiki?
