Re: [Networking] IPv6 Routing Issues on HT1000

You will experience IPv6 issue with these two IPv6 subnets. This 2001:1900::/32 IPv6 subnet block has been assigned from ARIN to Level3, but Hurricane Circuit and Yahoo are inappropriately advertising out to the internet.

2001:1900:2254::/48 – Currently advertised by Yahoo
2001:1900:2262::/48 – Currently advertised by Hurricane Electric

To troubleshoot whether the websites is using this IPv6 address , you can use nslookup –q=aaaa . Below is an example:

nslookup -q=aaaa www.freebsd.org
Server: 172.27.0.9
Address: 172.27.0.9#53

Non-authoritative answer:
www.freebsd.org canonical name = wfe0.ysv.freebsd.org.
wfe0.ysv.freebsd.org has AAAA address 2001:1900:2254:206a::50:0

On a related but separate issue, some device between Hughes and the fedoraproject.org site is rejecting the Hughes IPv6 block.

Neither of these issues are in Hughes' control, but Hughes is working with both entities to help them resolve the issue.

The Fedora Project issue has been corrected by the upstream provider, so HughesNet users can now reach that site via IPv6.

Indeed, I noticed it the day it was fixed but had forgotten about this post.

Thanks for moving the Internet forward with IPv6, HughesNet.
