I've searched around but haven't found anyone who can explain it. It seems like a hold-over from WinXP's v6 stack which also listed those addresses by default even though XP couldn't send DNS queries via IPv6 anyway. So you were forced to use dual-stack on XP and send AAAA queries to a resolver reachable via v4.For anybody who's taken the time to play with it, do these addresses still show up in the latest Windows 8 beta/consumer preview?-- Nathan
