Re: New IP cloud is coming.

Please explain what that would solve? If you have several routers - they all are eligible for the IP Cloud address.

edit: If you have a company and want all routers under same "umbrella", then you can create CNAME entries in your local DNS server for your domain.

Re: IPv6 Ping does not work with domain names

the problem will go away when IPv6 is set as a preferred option for the :resolve command and elsewhere where RouterOS attempts to resolve a hostname to IP address. When forced the :resolve command is returning the IPv6 address, hence the workaround of /ping [:resolve ipv6.only.domain] is working.
