Quote from: ratcheer on March 04, 2011, 11:07:43 AMI am trying to configure things to do the Enthusiast certification. I am a bit confused about the domain registration that I apparently performed, successfully.I am managing zone 2001:470:8:b57::/64. I requested 2001:470:8:b57:230::1 to be added as hostname ratcheer.com. This was successful.On my client host, I started apache2. It states that it is "using 2001:470:8:b57:230:1bff:feb5:9a1d for ServerName".
Quote from: jrocha on March 04, 2011, 02:41:47 PMIt also sounds like your apache configuration is incorrect, and is using your IP address as ServerName, which isn't usually what you want to do.

QuoteThese are the Name Servers we will delegate authority for the "Routed /64" and "Routed /48" above.We DO NOT delegate RDNS for the "Server IPv6 Address" or "Client IPv6 Address" above.

Quote from: jgeorge on March 05, 2011, 09:23:15 AMI guess the more obvious question here is: did you define your host running Apache to use the IP address of 2001:470:8:b57:230::1? And if so, why?The 2001:470:8:b57:230:1bff:feb5:9a1d address you're getting on the host is an autoconfigured address based on the server's NIC's MAC address (the ff:fe in the address is a dead giveaway that this is happening).If you have your machine set to automatically obtain an IPv6 address, that's the kind of address you're going to get (with *nix, Windows is (of course) a little different because it defaults to a random IPv6 address for security). However, unless you specifically define an IPv6 address you want for the server, you're going to get some kind of autoconfigured address.If you specifically want 2001:470:8:b57:230::1 you need to define that address on your server (how depends on what OS you're running).Defining a specific address for a specific host/domain in DNS doesn't really change anything - it's more or less up to you to tell DNS what's right, not necessary for you to tell DNS what you want and then the machines figure it out. :) I apologize if that sounds like really basic information but from the wording in your original post it seems like it might be worth clarifying.Rather than readdress your server (unless you really want to), since you have a perfectly workable IPv6 address for it right now, why not just change your DNS to point ratcheer.com to 2001:470:8:b57:230:1bff:feb5:9a1d?Joe
Quote from: ratcheer on March 05, 2011, 01:34:55 PMThank you. Yes, I need all the clarification I can get. I apologize for being so dense.
Quote from: ratcheer on March 05, 2011, 01:34:55 PMI simply installed apache2 in Linux and it started itself up and gave me that information. I assumed it was correct information.
Quote from: ratcheer on March 05, 2011, 01:34:55 PMJust a few minutes ago, I registered ratcheer.com with a registrar. Once that process has completed, I will try to continue with this. I hope I will be able to configure my domain registration to associate with he's nameservers. If I can't, I have just wasted $5.

Quote from: snarked on March 05, 2011, 03:35:12 PMOK, maybe your tunnel server was different, but HE usually puts the routed/64 on the odd third-quad and the tunnel/64 on the even-third quad. This is definently true for Los Angeles and Zurich, and generally true for all other servers I've seen questions about.
Quote from: broquea on March 05, 2011, 02:27:33 PMQuoteJust a few minutes ago, I registered ratcheer.com with a registrarIf your domain wasn't registered to begin with (as of your first post), then there shouldn't have been an expectation it would work. Again, we do _not_ query our authoritative name servers directly for anything unless as part of the second test at Guru (direct query against listed auth NS). All lookups are against caching recursors. If the domain wasn't valid, then the lookups would fail.
