IPv6 working here on Telstra Bigpond, mostly

Screen shot 2010-07-19 at 9.41.26 PM.pngI was impressed when Alastair tweeted reporting that he's got IPv6 internet connectivity working thanks to #internode and #openwrt.

Recently I've been learning a bit about the basics of TCP/IP by watching tcpdumps of my local lan. There's a lot of IPv6 on the LAN and I wondered if it makes it out to the broader internet via Telstra Bigpond.

Turns out the turtle dances for me too! Other test sites also report that IPv6 is working too.

That last one finds that the only thing that isn't working yet is an IPv6 DNS server.

So well done Bigpond on IPv6 but please fix the DNS.
