a very specific case:
« on: December 19, 2018, 01:26:47 AM »


can someone please try

when I do this on the machine that is my tunnel-end, no problem,
if I do this on any machine that has an IPv6 from the routed /64 prefix,
then I get massive problems - timeouts, ...

with any other site of my knowledge I haven't this problems;

the admin of this site tells me that there is a MTA setting problem on my side ...

No ping response, it respolves to an IPv6 though.

But then today I find I can't connect through my tunnel to anywhere that is IPV6.

ping -6 (timeout)
ping -6 (timeout)
ping -6 [my upstream ipv6] 12-13ms.

don't know any further points to connect to.

I'm connecting via

my address is '' which resolves to 2001:470:d:579::4  I can ping it from my windows box (intenral network) but cannot from the world side... (found an online ping utility, that can ping (fails for me) and can't ping (which works for me).   it has been working until today.
