Stuck on Guru test, not my fault!

Hi everyone,

I'm stuck on the Guru test but I don't think it's my fault... the web and mail server I used for the other tests is IPv6 enabled and reachable, but I got IPv6 because I volunteered to be part of a test rollout with the provider that hosts my server and domain.

That means that, even though their IPv6 network is online, their DNS servers are still on vanilla IPv4 and do not have AAAA records. Since I don't own those servers, I'm unable to change what's in their DNS records... So what does that mean? I can't get past Guru?

I may have found a workaround. I have set up HE DNS servers as slaves to my domain and placed them in the DNS Zone, just gotta wait for the TTL to expire to see if it works...

Edit: It worked! Now just gotta figure out what to do about the glue...
