Tunnel Duration: 37 years!?!?
1 Reply

Hi, I've noticed this before, but it wasn't high priority, so I never got around to asking about this. . . In the GoGoClient, when I go to the "Status" tab, the tunnel duration, as of right now,…Continue

Using Vista computer with GoGo6 tunnel as a router?
2 Replies

Now that I have a tunnel setup between my Vista laptop and Freenet6, is there some way I can now configure windows Vista to act as a router, making IPv6 available to the rest of my local network?…Continue

Why does windows seemingly randomly use or not use IPv6 on the *same* sites?
8 Replies

Hello,    After getting my GoGoNet tunnel working, I found a handy Firefox add-on called "ShowIP", which I've been running, so that I can see when a site I visit has IPv6 enabled.    I've noticed…Continue

I'm investigating the various transition technologies available with IPv6, and there's one piece of the puzzle which I'm having a very hard time finding - an IPv4 to IPv6 proxy program.Here's what I…Continue

"I've seen it a few times as well. Seem to be a bug in the client that causes it but I haven't investigated in any detail."

Tunnel Duration: 37 years!?!?

Hi, I've noticed this before, but it wasn't high priority, so I never got around to asking about this. . . In the GoGoClient, when I go to the "Status" tab, the tunnel duration, as of right now, shows that the tunnel has been active for 13704 days. I'm pretty sure that I haven't been using the IPv6 tunnel continuously since 1972. . . Any idea how that could have gotten so screwed up, and how I can get it 'fixed' to show the correct duration?See More

"Do you need these 'private' addresses to be routable within your network? If not, I believe every host will automatically be configured with what's known as a 'link-local' address, which isn't routed, but can be used to…"

"Based on my testing before, Firefox doesn't refreshes its IPv4/6 priorities. If you have Firefox running (check in the background also) before GoGo6 successfully connected, Firefox will use IPv4. Then if you restart Firefox, sometimes it…"

"Could this be a race condition? I'm wondering if Vista might just fire off a packet to every listed DNS Server, then use the answer from whoever responds first? In any case, does GoGoClient have any capability to 'disable' the other…"

"I've also seen this behavior on win 7. It happens when windows uses different DNS servers for different queries as google is only available on v6 on the gogo6 DNS. On my machine it seems it prefers the IPv6 DNS most of the time but not always."

"The GoGoClient configured DNS Server is: 2001:5c0:1000:11::2 Last night, Google was showing an IPv6 address when accessed with Firefox, and now this morning, Google is showing an IPv4 address. I can't seem to get the blogs which showed IPv6…"

"Hey thanks. Sounds like I should be routing now. It's sort of an academic question at the moment, since my laptop is the only computer on my network - the only other device I have is a T-Mobile G1 phone, which I believe does not have IPv6…"

Carl Holzhauer replied to Jeff S.'s discussion 'Why does windows seemingly randomly use or not use IPv6 on the *same* sites?'
"What's the address of the server that the GoGo6 client added? It's probably a GoGo6 DNS server, and IIRC, they're a Google partner for the IPv6 thing, so you would get a IPv6 google page. Vista and newer prefer IPv6 over IPv4, so it…"

Jeff S. replied to Jeff S.'s discussion 'Why does windows seemingly randomly use or not use IPv6 on the *same* sites?'
""What are you using for your DNS servers?" Well, the GoGoClient automatically configured a DNS Server for the IPv6 tunnel, at an IPv6 Address. Additionally, I have DNS Service from my ISP (IPv4 based), and a secondary/fallback server for…"

"My first reaction is that your IPv6 connection is somehow timing out. This could be caused by slow IPv6 access times *tunneling is always slower than native access) What are you using for your DNS servers? By default, Google will not respond to…"

Just a computer geek learning about IPv6, in case it ever starts to be deployed on a larger scale. Also, hoping it might be a nice way to deal with my dynamic IP and NAT, so I can have 'real' IP addresses for devices inside the network.
