I am new to this, I just installed he tunnel on cisco router and connected windows xp to router's lan interface, everything seems working fine, On the xp, I can ping to ipv6 web site using ipv6 address but I can't http to any ipv6 web sites.  Can someone shed light in here?

Question: do I need to setup ipv6 dns on xp?, if yes, how?

My router is facing the internet, there is no access-list or firewall or NAT.

Many thanks!

To the best of my knowledge, IPv6 is not enabled by default in Win XP. There are instructions all over the internet for enabling it. Use Google to find them. (I have not done it, myself).



If he can already ping, i assume Ipv6 is already enabled.

Have you assigned an Ipv6 address to your connection?

Lets see a copy of your routing tables and a copy of ipconfig /all on a computer that's not working


XP doesn't support IPv6 nameservers being used for lookups. Also if you enabled ipv6 and autoconfigured an address, but haven't rebooted: reboot.
