Google over Ipv6
« on: June 28, 2009, 09:31:35 AM »

Hello, I recently read this news article.
Quote
We are pleased to let all tunnelbroker.net users know that we are participating in the Google over IPv6 project and we've set up a network of whitelisted anycasted recursive caching nameservers.  This means using these nameservers will allow you to visit Google's various services over IPv6, like www.google.com, mail.google.com, news.google.com and more (not just ipv6.google.com!). Google has more information on this whitelisting project at http://www.google.com/ipv6

You should use 2001:470:20::2 as your IPv6 enabled recursor, and if you still want one available over IPv4, please use 74.82.42.42.

These are also displayed on the "Tunnel Details" page when logged into tunnelbroker.net.

You say to use a specific ipv6 address as your ipv6 enabled recursor.
Unfortunately I do not know how to do this or where it would need to be configured.
Is this a resolv.conf edit?
Any additional information regarding this configuration would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes, into resolv.conf on unix based systems. WinXP can only use IPv4 NS entires, however Vista should let you set v6 using either netsh, or going into TCPIP Version 6 properties in the GUI, and manually set them there.

If you run your own name server, you can also just put a forward only zone entry in for google.com.  BIND named.conf example:

Code: [Select]
# HE DNS server for google IPv6 service
# Try HE DNS server first for this zone, else use our own
zone "google.com" IN {
   type forward;
   forward first;
   forwarders {
      2001:470:20::2;
      74.82.42.42;
};
