Can't connect to cogentco.com
« on: February 01, 2011, 09:10:16 PM »

I can't seem to get packets to cogentco.com via IPv6. It appears to be reachable according to http://www.berkom.blazing.de/tools/ping.cgi and http://www.ipv6-test.com/validate.php, and I can get to other IPv6 hosts via my tunnel, so this appears to be a localized routing problem.

Code: [Select]
$ traceroute6 cogentco.com

because Cogent and HE are kicking sand at each other and not peering, or at least, Cogent is, HE says they have offerred to fix this.  I don't know the whole story.

I am fortunate enough (i guess?) to have transit with AS174, so I peer IPv6 with them.  But they have almost 1000 less v6 prefixes in their "full view" than I get from HE.

are you sure you are not defaulting back to IPv4???

yes it is ipv6.

hello,

Not sure what magic is happening but the HE looking glass doesn't have a route for that IP or prefix.

They are announcing it as a /32 according to my router;

v6#show ipv6 route 2001:550:1::cc01
Routing entry for 2001:550::/32
  Known via "bgp xxxxx", distance 20, metric 122021, type external
  Route count is 1/1, share count 0
  Routing paths:

Interesting you can get to it.   If you manually telnet to 2001:550:1::cc01 port 80, the socket opens?

Yes the connection opens takes a while like with the browser but it does open. Trace route does show stars after HE.

Short story:  Cogent is not IPv6 competent.  Find another transit provider if you can.

I wouldn't go that far.....but Cogent does historically have a somewhat agressive, if not to say menacing, habit of de-peering or not peering with other backbones.  But they do have competence.  HE has the opposite mentality, I suspect to attract significant IPv6 traffic to their network to better position themselves as a heavyweight.

I would go that far and HAVE gone that far.

In a recent IPv6 traceroute earlier this week by someone I know who peers with cogent, the IPv6 addresses returned by cogent networking routers included addresses in the ::/80 range (IPv4 compatible IPv6 addresses).  That should not happen.

If they were competent, then explain this crap.  Compatible addresses are not native addresses.

I see your point;


Tracing route to ipv6.cogentco.com [2001:550:1::cc01]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  2605:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx::1
  2     2 ms     2 ms     2 ms  2605:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx::1
  3     3 ms     2 ms     2 ms  2001:550:x:xx::x
  4    18 ms    18 ms    18 ms  ::ffff:154.54.0.37
  5    18 ms    18 ms    18 ms  ::ffff:154.54.7.57
  6    18 ms    18 ms    18 ms  ::ffff:154.54.5.253
  7    18 ms    18 ms     *     2001:550:1::1
  8    17 ms    17 ms    35 ms  2001:550:1::cc01

Trace complete.


the xxx obfuscation is mine.

I have them for now since in Canada IPv6 connectivity doesn't grow on trees.  HE gave me a free peering opportunity FFS, which I took and appreciate their generosity in offerring it.  The day we roll out with customers however I should have Peer1 and hopefully Tiscali up as well.  

Other than fugly traceroutes, and the fact they refuse to peer with HE, anything else?  ;D  Incidentally the topic of this thread was reachability to cogentco.com.

just as a followup to this, I have read that IPv4 mapped addresses in traceroutes are caused by MPLS routers in the path that do not have IPv6 native stacks.

AT&T would share the Cogent "incompetence", likely for the same reasons;

That makes sense. I am trying to make intermediate IPv4 hops visible in my 6in4 tunnelling software, and they could show up as ::ffff:198.51.100.30 in an IPv6 traceroute. I couldn't figure out if ::/96 or ::ffff:0:0/96 is the best choice for such addresses. But if MPLS routers always use ::ffff:0:0/96 for that purpose, I should probably stick with that as well.

Are there any other providers that offer an IPv6 BGP connection over a tunnel for free in addition to HE.net?
