Certification: Explorer test fail
« on: May 23, 2013, 05:37:49 AM »

Hi IPv6er,
I was wondering if any one of you have experienced some problem when validating the Explorer test level. When I open http://ipv6.he.net/certification/cert-main.php the test start but the browser says that he still wait for an answer from 2001:470:0:64::2
I have tried to connect to 2001:470:0:64::2 using wget http://[2001:470:0:64::2] :
Code: [Select]
--2013-05-23 13:29:05--  http://[2001:470:0:64::2]/
Connecting to 2001:470:0:64::2:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response...

I am able to connect using IPv6 using a Vyatta gateway.

Thanks

Hi,
The Explorer level, check if you have IPv6 connectivity
Thanks

Gotcha.

You say you can connect using IPv6, how do you know? Are you using the Vyatta now?

Yes I am able to connect using IPv6 with a Vyatta Gateway. I know it because I am able to ping6 2a00:1450:4006:801::1002 (google ipv6) from my desktop.
In addition, I have test my IPv6 connectivity with http://www.test-ipv6.com which gives me 10/10 score...

I'm able to ping your end of the tunnel (which I assume is 2001:470:0:64::2) so your tunnel is indeed up.  I'm not sure why you're not able to pass the test, as I think the only requirement is you can browse to that site.

Could be a PMTU discovery issue. Are you using an HE tunnel to connect, or some other IPv6 connectivity?

That was exactly the problem !!
I have changed the the tunnel MTU to 1280 (minimum)  the connection has become better !
