No route to burstnet.eu
« on: May 03, 2013, 07:41:28 AM »

I have a server in Manchester, England on 2a02:21a8:1:252::c9d6:9fdc and cannot route either way between it and HE. My tunnel endpoint is on Optimum Online, Long Island.

From burstnet:

traceroute to homer.ipv6.peachfamily.net (2001:470:1f07:880:6ef0:49ff:fe2e:432a), 30 hops max, 80 byte packets

Routing to England via the West coast also seems suboptimal  ;D

Single homed behind Cogent. The same Cogent who doesn't peer with HE or buy transit from anyone :) Enjoy the limited IPv6 connectivity!

Looks like they even took down all their peering/transits, going down from 16 to 1.

I am curious about the reasons. I just tested from a few other networks, and all of them could reach 2a02:21a8:1:252::c9d6:9fdc.

I have seen a different provider go from 1 to 0. They are still advertising IPv6 support on their website (dual stack with the IPv6 address in a range that is no longer advertised in BGP.)

I know Cogent's reputation perfectly well and would not have gone with an option that was single-homed through them had I bothered checking. I have a ticket open with Burstnet that has been raised to engineering to resolve; I'm interested to see what kind of an answer they come up with  ;D In the meantime, I have found a provider in London who are not single-homed and even have HE as one of their IPv6 peers....

AIUI HE think of themselves as an "IPv6 tier 1" and as such refuse to buy IPv6 transit from anyone (they do buy IPv4 transit).

I don't believe cogent have released a public position on their relationship to HE but I strongly suspect they see HE as a relatively small provider who is trying to use their early adoption of IPv6 to bully their way up the ISP pecking order.
