IPv6 & Networking the Internet of Things

I want to access Google in IPv6 what do I have to do?

You need to manualy configure the IPv6 DNS servers to use. The servers are 2001:5c0:1000:11::2 and 2001:5c0:1001::194.
In Windows it is easiest to add the servers to the virtual tunnel adapter under Network connections.

anothet UK ipv6 name server is 2001:630:181:35::83

in windows, from the command prompt (start-run-command "enter), to add ipv6 dns type:-
netsh interface ipv6 add dns "Local Area Connection" 2001:5c0:1000:11::2

windows xp to try a ping again from the dos window:- ping6 ipv6.google.com
windows vista, from dos window:- ping -6 ipv6.google.com
I use gogoClient from Freenet6 in authenticated mode, and I don't need to do any server configuration !
Once I login to my Freenet6 account I just point my browser to ipv6.google.com and I get the jumping letters to confirm I have an IPv6 connection.
May be I am missing something on the question ?
You aren't doing that in 2010. And the the jumping letters is not happening any more. Yes you are missing going to the www.google.com without ipv6 in the URL and other sites on googles system all on ipv6. That is another animal altogether.
Is the Freenet6 DNS server meant to be used like the DNS server of my regular ISP?

That is, set up a DNS server on the router that forwards the queries to 2001:5c0:1000:11::2 ?

Is there a secondary DNS or is that an anycast address?
Yes, Jan, you would add that address to your list of DNS servers (/etc/resolv.conf for example).
On my router I'm running dnsmasq which allows specifying DNS servers for particular domains. In my case, I just added a line that directs queries for google.com to the v6 DNS address (currently HE's DNS because gogo's server still isn't answering my google queries).
google.com.sixxs.org - it makes smth like dynamic tunnel
so far so good.
My local DNS resolver is quite important to ensure efficient goeDNS lookups. I have just forwared the google zone in my DNS resolver configuration to a known Google IPv6 resolver and then the rest of my lookups are handled in the normal way.
oh, only the google have the ipv6?
Yah, google owns everything. Including ipv6. :-) I'm just kidding ...

There are other things on ipv6 and more and more every day I guess.
Most Google services are now accessible from Freenet6 if you configure your machines to use the Freenet6 DNS servers.
Good Morning!

I added the IPv6 DNS above as instructed via netsh int ipv6 add dns "Local Area Connection" {IPv6 DNS Here} but when I ping6 google.com if returns "Bad IPv6 address google.com".

I then added the addresses to GoGoNet's Gateway6 client as 2001:5c0:1000:11::2:2001:5c0:1001::194 but the same error when doing ping6 google.com shows up.

I read from the Google over IPv6 page that it will return an AAAA record for IPv6 DNS that have added this feature? Or I misunderstood it?

I am behind a NAT btw, could it be the reason? (Google over IPv6 page says that they don't offer support those behind a non-IPv6 NAT).

Thank you very much.

System: Windows XP Pro SP3
ISP: Globe Innove (Philippines)
