I have a setup with a tunnel via the HE netbroker as follows:
Local interface sit0 address: 2001:470:1f08:1c79::2
Remote tunnel gateway address: 2001:470:1f08:1c79::1
To enable local subnet routing to other computers, I have a /48 net with a local network address on eth1: 2001:470:680c:1::1
Apache is IP6 capable and I can connect to it from my local subnet machines on both 2001:470:1f08:1c79::2 and 2001:470:680c:1::1.
Connections to external addresses relayed by the gateway machine are fine from all local machines.
Connections into the gateway machine from local machines work and wget -6 works on the test file.
The V6 address is published on "ipv6.meiring.org.uk" using an AAAA entry in my ISP dns server.
Local and remote machines pick up this address OK from the DNS servers.
Using interweb utilities (http://www.subnetonline.com
) scanning port 80 on both the above addresses confirms port 80 to be open and all local subnet machines can be "ping6ed" from outside.
I have tried publishing both v6 addresses (on ipv6.meiring.org.uk and link6.meiring.org.uk) and both propogated OK and either URL can be used to connect to the apache web server from other local machines.
Now to the Questions:
Which address should be used for the web server - the /48 address or the link address?? I presume the former?
Why, if other systems can see the apache server, does the HE Enthusiast test not download the file?
