IPv6 | The Internet of Things

Freenet6 Tools

Below is a collection of tools and services that may come in handy when debugging your IPv6 networks or when you're just testing things out. If you know of any other tools that should be here, send us a mail at info@gogo6.com.


IPv6 Looking Glass

BGP, ping and traceroute for IPv6 are available from one of our partners here.


IPv6 Mail Bouncer

This is a tool for testing if your mail setup is capable of sending IPv6 emails. To use this tool simply send an email to bouncer@freenet6.net and, if your mail is IPv6 enabled, you should receive an instant reply. If you do not receive a reply, that means that your mail system is probably not IPv6 enabled.

You can leave subject field and body of the message empty, or you can put something in the subject field that will help you identify reply email. The body of the message can be empty and will be replaced in the reply with some helpful information (the date the message was received and the path of the message).

Please note that the bouncer is only reachable over IPv6, however, the reply message may be mailed to you over IPv4. Check message headers of the reply message.

Missing the reply message? Check your spam folder.

IPv6 NTP Time Server

For testing if your time client/server is IPv6 enabled, you can use ntp.freenet6.net which is an IPv6 only time server.


IPv6 DNS Server

If you want to use an IPv6 DNS together with your Freenet6 Tunnel you can configure your client with any of the publicly available IPv6 enabled DNS servers. Such as Google IPv6 DNS 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844 or OpenDNS 2620:0:ccc::2 and 2620:0:ccd::2

The Freenet6 Tunnel normally relies on your local DNS server but it also offers up one IPv6 DNS server if you have the latest client. It has recently been changed to the Google IPv6 DNS as we are retiring the Freenet6 IPv6 DNS servers as there are multiple free and good alternatives available now.

If I got ipv6 address for my router in house with my gogo6 account 'xxxxxxxx', how I get to know the ipv6 address exactly while I'm somewhere outside.
