Default Debian repos via ipv6

Hi

I seem to have great dificulty access the debian repos via ipv6
Connecting to ftp.au.debian.org (2001:388:1034:2900::25)

and security etc.

I have to wait till ipv6 times out and then it falls backs to ipv4.

Any one else having this issue ?

Who to contact re problem

Are you able to contact other ipv6 sites?

Try "ping6 ipv6.google.com" for example.
Then try "traceroute6 ipv6.google.com".

If both of those work, try "traceroute6 ftp.au.debian.org" and see
what it says. From the output, you may be able to figure out where
the lossage is. If you do, that will give you a clue as to whom to
contact to get it fixed.


Enjoy!

Rick

I can ping6 to ipv6 and to other ipv6 sites, what seems to stall is the
ftp to ftp.au.debian.org and security....

That's because ftp.au.debian.org doesn't support IPv6 downloads.

According to this http://www.debian.org/mirror/mirrors_full none of the
Australian mirrors support IPv6. Below is a list of mirror sites supporting
IPv6, compiled from the URL above. Hope you find this useful.

well isn't that an issue, why provide ipv6 name resolution to a server
if it is not going to provide that service

Another approach would be to turn off IPv6 on your box. Then aptitude
will not have to go thru the timeout before it tries IPv4.
