IPV6

Question I use open dns and I have a ipv6 capable modem and router
Is there anything I need to do since I am not using comcast dns servers?

No. But be aware that the OpenDNS IPv6 servers do not currently provide any of the web filtering or security features of their IPv4 DNS services.

You do have the option (if your router has the configuration options) of not using any IPv6 DNS servers and only use the OpenDNS IPv4 servers that will provide the AAAA records of IPv6 sites.

What if it switches back between ipv4 and 6? I've seen that some days when I put in "whats my ip" to google it sends back an ipv6 address but today I did it and its ipv4. I thought once your area or ISP switched you didnt go back.

I was wondering that too. Had IPV6 working on my Tomato/6120 setup last week then find today that it was broken again. Bunch of reboots and some settings modification (eventually ending back to what it originally was anyway) and its back again.

Your correct, but you should have what we call Dual-Stack so both an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address. Check your ipconfig and make sure you have both.

Ok once we have IPv6 setup on the CMTS that services your area you should be good to go.. With that said the only thing I can think of that could happen would be if we had a "node move" and moved your node to a new CMTS. But that shouldn't be an issue because if your in a head-end that supports IPv6 you shouldn't move on to a CMTS that doesn't support it.

Bottom line, to know a 100% send me your cable modem mac or Public IPv4 address and I will check that CMTS that is servicing your service.

I hope that helps, really the bottom line whatever I can do to make the transition smoother is what I am looking for...

I think that you need to start this thread over and tell us if you are having a general problem getting IPv6 to work, or if you are just having problems with OpenDNS.

In other words, does IPv6 work if for you if you just use the Comcast DHCP supplied DNS servers? Once everyone knows exactly what your problem is, then we can work on a solution.

You can use them. Please read and my previous post that those are name resolution only and do not provide the features that the OPenDNS IPv4 servers use. That's important to understand.

On a general note, as I already mentioned, a DNS server with an IPv4 address (ex: 8.8.8.8 or 208.67.222.222) will give you the AAAA records (the IPv6 address) if available.

The Comcast IPv6 anycast DNS servers are 2001:558:feed::1 or 2001:558:feed::2
