Failing at enthusiast level with "Could not grab the file via IPv6 HTTP"

Hello all!

I've seen several posts on the above Enthusiast level certification, that the named file can not be recalled from the domain, and this has oftentimes been a caching  issue on a HE server? AFAICT my AAAA domain is active, I can WGET the file in question, and http://www.ipv6-test.com/ seems to indicate all is well.

Could someone please test the following?: http://sjy2ipv61.mooo.com/iyy3tk6i3v.txt Or otherwise offer advice on how to best resolve this issue.




DNS looks fine, but I think it's a firewall issue?

Lookup is fine, but I can't connect to your webserver.  I assume you've already checked to see that your HTTP server is listening on IPv6, so I'd check your firewall


Hello sjy2,

The test from http://www.ipv6-test.com/validate.php failed now (DNS record are OK) ...

Firewall problem?
http server no IPV6 capable?

What is your operating system & web server?
