Has anyone else noticed that IPv6 connectivity seems to be down on 2dg?


It disappeared around 5 days ago for me. Is it a planned outage? Is there an ETA when it'll return?

IPv6 is working just fine for me (Palmerston North):

It's back after a router reboot. Tried that when I noticed it was gone but wasn't successful. At least it's back up now I suppose.
Did anyone else notice it, or perhaps know what happened?

I'm going to post here but has anyone tried to port forward a PC using the fritzbox using IPv6?  IPv4 works fine, but I've tried setting up owncloud using ipv6 (static block) and internally everything connects fine from both the IPv6/4 addresses and the hostname, but externally when I ping the address its stated as being blocked by the router even though enabled and being fully passed through.


I read elsewhere that another international ISP had done some config changes that caused IPv6 routing to not work and I wondered if anyone else had a problem with ipv6 from the internet.
