Re: BT IPv6


[re: Callumpy] [link to this post]
 
Thanks for all your advice. I re plugged the Hub earlier and lost the IPv6 but a disconnect/reconnect sorted it.

My OVH server was slowing down to a crawl but with this new hub it's flying, I guess it was a IPv6 to IPv4 problem, only been flying since the move over.

Hi folks,

Does anyone know if BT have native IPv6 DNS servers yet?

If yes what are the addresses?

Kind regards,

Not as far as I know.
My Smart Hub is using IPv6 but hasn't set any IPv6 DNS information shown below:

DNS: Not available

So I assume that to be no, but I might be wrong.

Saying that though, I can ping an IPv6 address by its domain name, so it might be.

You can look up the IPv6 address of a hostname by using an IPv4 DNS server.

I was wondering that myself, but wasn't too sure.

But looking at the list of DNS Servers that our devices use here there is no IPv6 ones listed, so I assume its not using any.
