Ok thanks.  So how would you explain the completely different speeds, up & down?

Testing against different servers.
 deliberately tries to spread you around, avoid you hitting on network test servers in favor for the one it says your better conected for.

I was looking into this myself. No-ip supports AAAA redirections now. So enabled 6 on my router (funny enough started to get some odd tcp timeouts like reported elsewhere..)


Most the tests come back OK, but public v6 reported like v4 behind CG - differently than the router. And any pinholes I created (you cant specify different out to in :( ) weren't being flagged as open with remote tests :/



Have you setup and gotten AAAA working via No-IP on your router?  I am completely stumped on how to make this work.  I have a no-ip account and have been using it for DDNS for all my different work sites (office, home offices, family, etc...), but I have no idea how to make DDNS work with IPv6 so that I can easily find and locate my various servers/devices that I was previously using and accessing via IPv4 and port forwarding

And quite simply virtually nobody cares about P2P these days. Those that do fall into the 0.1% of people who could benefit from a public or static public IP address.


Long gone are the days that P2P traffic made up a significant percentage of RSP traffic as everybody pirated content. These days those still engaging in that and the total percentage of traffic it represents is minimal compared to what it used to be.


2D just give you an public IP address for free - they've done it to plenty of people on here who have rung up.





Are there any public stats on traffic usage?
