Could someone help me test something

I'm working with an HE engineer to troubleshoot an issue I have with Bing / Yahoo search redirects not working for me over our HE tunnel, but working over other connections I have with other IPv6 providers. We're trying to eliminate my tunnel config / MTU / routing etc as the cause of the problem.

Could someone else please, go to www.yahoo.co.uk and perform a search for 'confused' and then click on the top result which should be for confused.com and say 'sponsored link' next to it, and tell me if the link works and you end up at the confused.com website, or if you time out connecting to an msn.com server (over IPv6).

Just tried it. Seems to work, but I suspect it was an ipv4 connection.

I did a dig confused.com aaaa
