Prob w/ IPv6 HTTP File Request / DNS Caching?

I've seen a few posts regarding the IPv6 HTTP request test failing, and it being a cache problem.

When I initially took the test, I forgot to issue an 'rndc reload heyaaron.com'

It's been about 30 minutes, and I've verified heyaaron.com is IPv6 reachable and I can grab my test file.

How long does it take for the cache to timeout?


Apparently it's somewhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours.  ;)


i'm having the same problem, i can retrieve the file using the hex format but if i use the fqdn, it does not connect.
