Suggestion: Google IPv6
« on: January 08, 2009, 11:38:24 AM »

It seems that Google is starting to phase in IPv6 services to those ISPs that have native IPv6 connectivity for their customers. A little more information is on address

Is there any plan or interest among HE IPv6 admins to contact Google and arrange for this network to be included in this Google IPv6 enabling plan?

It is being discussed, however keep in mind that would mean you'd have to start using our NS that are registered for the service for your recursive lookups. Since it appears that it is still based on sourcing from the NS ipv4 address, you could probably also talk to your ISP about doing the same (especially since it appears this is primarily geared towards ISPs).

I have permited myself to ask google if they hava a "name server that returns AAAA (and A) record all the time not taking in to account the source ip".
That could be a solutions for single / small users with there recursive name server and ipv6 connectivity to forward queries for * to that google dns.
