Thank you for contacting us.
IPv6 is not current being used as of yet. You do not need to configure IPv6.
More info on IPv6 can be found at
Should you need any further assistance, or if this does not solve your query, please let us know.

I know I don't need to configure IPv6, that is being done by a multitude of people around the world,
What I do want is to know what AAAA record to enter so that my domain(s) are IPv6 accessable!!!
I guess this means I can just proceed with my already configured IPv6 address and enter it.
Gee thanks TCL. I'm sure I'd have trouble with home networking etc. if I host my own webservers and I'm querying IPv6 support...
The thing I find even more curious is that its taken almost 24 hours for an Automatic response?
I have now updated my support query as if I didn't they'd assume the problem was fixed!!!!
Now that we have ipv6 here in NZ, as per ".nz offers IPv6 connectivity"
I want to know If TCL are supporting IPv6, and if they'll still be handing out fixed IP's.
I have passed through a query to TCL asking for my fixed IPv6 address so that I can configure my gateway machine to have the correct address for IPv6 support and also so I can add my domain name to the new DNS server listings.

keep us updated inane!
my servers are all IPv6 -reachable and have been for years, but through a tunnel connection with a poor MTU/MRU. been looking for native IPv6 transit (without having to peer) for a while now.

Sadly, they will probably take their time deploying service over IPv6. If you think it is bad in NZ, try doing so in the US. We had to jump through hoops to get native IPv6 service to our sites. taniwha - and what does, or what do you think dns sec have to do w/ IPv6?? /TJ

TCL is actually one of the few ISPS in NZ which have v6 connectivity - see http://www.sixxs.net/tools/grh/dfp/all/?country=nz . I think we're still a while away from consumer native connections, although WxC has announced a trial. If you can't get it natively, http://broker.aarnet.net.au is your friend - it's the closest tunnel broker to us.

If it makes any diffirence, the TCL service builders have a very clear plan on offering IPv6, as I expect every ISP does. Of course i can't say what it is....

XTRA are dragging their feet... surprise surprise
Thank you for emailing us in regards IPv6.
We don't have a time frame when we are going to implement IPv6.
There are some programs on the internet which can convert IPv4 to IPv6.
If you have further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us on

Spreading the love:
SixXS goes global - with ipv6 tunnel endpoint in Wellington by ACSData.
Thanks to the people from Advanced Computer Solutions in Wellington, New Zealand, we are very proud to present a new PoP in the SixXS family:
nzwlg01.sixxs.net. which is located in Wellington, New Zealand.
This PoP is available for all users from New Zealand!
Further details about the PoP can be found on the ACSData PoP Page (http://www.sixxs.net/pops/acsdata/)
We will also, for at least the coming month, be giving new users from New Zealand bonus credits so that they can directly request a tunnel + subnet from this PoP. Thus spread the word!
