Need to delgate subdomain ?
« on: October 10, 2010, 02:02:39 PM »

I have a domain (hosted with he.net) that I've been using for a long time with MX
records pointing at Google Hosting.

I've set up an AAAA record for a host (ipv6.port111.com) and all is fine.

When I add an MX for ipv6.port111.com, it fails to show up in dig.   Do I need
to delegate a domain ?   Can I do this in the context of the he.net zoneedit
tool ?

Thanks,

How long did you let it propagate?

Code: [Select]

[carl@mars ~]$ dig mx ipv6.port111.com

HE seems to know about it too

Code: [Select]

It was indeed impatience that was the problem :-).

Currently trying to figure out where to point AAAA/NS records (e.g. ns1.he.net's v6 equivilant) ... no wait....
dig is your friend:

 dig ns1.ipv6.he.net any

; <<>> DiG 9.7.0-P1 <<>> ns1.ipv6.he.net any
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 30684
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;ns1.ipv6.he.net.      IN   ANY

;; ANSWER SECTION:
ns1.ipv6.he.net.   400   IN   A   64.71.188.2
ns1.ipv6.he.net.   400   IN   AAAA   2001:470:0:57::2
