Forum availability via IPv6

Mon Aug 01, 2011 8:07 am

So I'm using IPv6 at home. Great. Unfortunately that makes this place kind of unavailable a lot of the time on platforms that prefer IPv6.

Right now, for example:
sh-3.2$ dig forum.mikrotik.com | grep IN
;forum.mikrotik.com.		IN	A
forum.mikrotik.com.	        2184   	IN	A	159.148.147.201
sh-3.2$ dig AAAA forum.mikrotik.com | grep AAAA
; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> AAAA forum.mikrotik.com
;forum.mikrotik.com.		IN	AAAA
forum.mikrotik.com. 	7028 	IN	AAAA	2a02:610:7501:1000::201

IPv4 latency is atrocious, IPv6 is just unavailable. Some platforms don't just ignore IPv6 when it's unavailable, so this resource is seen as unavailable when only IPv4 is up.

what about a traceroute? i have seen that some IPv6 providers can't reach us, some can. Can you try from a different IPv6 provider (I assume you use HE?)

I am using HE. I can't try using another provider, I'm afraid.
Here the traceroute - you're right, it does die within HE. Unfortunately for your North American audience that's going to be most of the traffic. Most of us can't get native IPv6 at home since US providers are way, way, way behind the curve on IPv6 while many of your users aren't.
Any chance of getting your IPv6 uplink to talk to HE about what's going on? The hop names indicate I'm making it to Germany, I guess?

Oh well, made a thread with HE in their forums. That's about all I can do. It's not like I pay for my tunnel so there's no real support.

I can't believe routing is still dead via IPv6 to the mikrotik.com domain. Its been over a week now.

No kidding. It's extremely annoying. As a single user of an HE tunnel there isn't much I can do, I'm not even giving anyone money. Chances would be much, much better if Mikrotik used their IPv6 uplinks to lean on whoever is broken on the chain - at least there's money changing hands there somewhere, so there's incentive.

Or maybe you could as you are the representative here for Mikrotik considering its MIkrotik that can't be reached. I know I'd track down the problem if it were my customers not able to reach me.

we are working on it, but it's interesting what HE got from the other ISP.

From experience, lots of things can't be reached with ipv6. This is not a mikrotik problem. It times out way way before it reaches anything near us.

Strangely in the 6+ years I've been using IPv6, I can't recall having many issues with sites broadcasting AAAA DNS records. The only one that sticks in my mind is mikrotik.com.
Maybe its not so much as the internet as a whole but more localised that you base your experience.

Tell me why most of the ipv6 ready sites have a separate domain name for it (ipv6.google.com etc).

I always presumed it was for testing in case end users were using broken browser implementations etc. By seperating into the 2 domain records it is easy to identify issues between ipv4 and ipv6 without losing traffic to the site. That said, www.google.com has AAAA records too that work fine but I'm sure you know this.

no, they don't work fine, that's why they have a separate domain. because there are too many problems with ipv6 still.

like I said, we will try to get our other ISP to give us IPv6, we will see if that makes a difference. The current ISP is unable to solve the HE problem.

I have native Level3 v6 and can't get there. It's probably something to do with peering agreements between providers. : )

Email NOC@HE.NET and ask them to look into it, give them the source IP and the destination IP. I've had many times where my v6 bgp prefix was still being announced to them but many of their routers lost it / or dampened it for a week at a time.

Hurricane Electric is still announcing the IPv6 prefix in question to my network. Various public looking glass sites show that Sprint and TATA (among others) can reach MikroTik's network just fine. I just sent off an email to HE.NET asking for more information. If I hear back, I will post in this thread. As we peer with HE.NET at http://www.seattleix.net/ and they provide us IPv6 transit for this particular prefix, I hope they'll respond in a timely fashion. I would at least like to know the AS number of the HE.NET peer that's injecting the prefix onto their network.

Aaron out.

Re: Forum availability via IPv6

Thu Aug 11, 2011 3:05 pm

guys you could try to do traceroute to 2a02:610:7501:1000::2 and see if this is reachable. as there are some update in global routing tables and we can reach our other IPv6 addresses.

AAAA records indeed where pulled since a lot of customers could not reach forums and our main page. So if you know the address you can check it.

edit:

AAAA records are back

The difference to when it wasn't working appears to be that I'm getting handed off to Telia in San Jose now rather than make it to Europe (Frankfurt) on HE.
Specific answers require specific questions. When in doubt, post the output of "/ip address print detail", "/ip route print detail", "/interface print detail", "/ip firewall export", and an accurate network diagram.

Re: Forum availability via IPv6

Glad it's back! I didn't hear anything back from HE.net though. It appears HE.net is no longer announcing the prefix to us (which is a good thing if they were unable to transit the traffic to the destination). Looking at HE.net's looking glass via http://lg.he.net/ a traceroute on their network shows:
1 	44 ms 	13 ms 	24 ms 	10gigabitethernet1-2.core1.sjc2.he.net (2001:470:0:2f::2)
2 	7 ms 	1 ms 	1 ms 	sjo-eqx-s1-link.telia.net (2001:2000:3080:1b7::1)
3 	431 ms 	436 ms 	185 ms 	s-b3-v6.telia.net (2001:2000:3018:9::1)
4 	458 ms 	190 ms 	417 ms 	internetf-ic-142059-s-b3.c.telia.net (2001:2000:3080:1bf::2)
5 	179 ms 	468 ms 	191 ms 	2a02:610:ffff::2

8 	420 ms 	229 ms 	415 ms 	titan-gw.v53.ls.lv (2a02:610:7500::1)
9 	206 ms 	424 ms 	200 ms 	2a02:610:7500:8::2
10 	461 ms 	211 ms 	431 ms 	2a02:610:7500:9::2
11 	197 ms 	444 ms 	206 ms 	2a02:610:7501:1000::1
12 	467 ms 	211 ms 	465 ms 	2a02:610:7501:1000::2
That's MUCH better than before. So it looks like the issue is fixed even on HE.net.

Hope IPv6 routing remains stable now.

Aaron out.

Re: Forum availability via IPv6

Sat Aug 13, 2011 6:43 am

It was stable for a while. Now it's down again. I've also now got two providers up at home: HE and SixXS (which is pretty much all anyone in the US can get if their provider doesn't do native IPv6, which sadly are very, very few). Both are currently down, and both go through a path via Telia to get to you guys (hand off is in San Jose).

Here's some console output.

I can't ping forum.mikrotik.com on its IPv6 address:
$ ping6 forum.mikrotik.com

Same traceroute by IP. Now it times out within 2a02:610:7501:1000::/64, which I presume belongs to MT as it's the same subnet as the forum server.

All this time I can't connect to tcp/80 on forum.mikrotik.com, regardless of whether a traceroute works.
$ telnet -6 forum.mikrotik.com 80
Trying 2a02:610:7501:1000::201...
telnet: connect to address 2a02:610:7501:1000::201: Operation timed out
So to summarize: I can now test via HE as well as SixXS networks. The results on both are the same at this time: can't get to forum.mikrotik.com's IPv6 address on tcp/80. I can't ping it, either. I can ping as far as Telia, and then ICMPv6 as a direct echo request dies. I can traceroute all the way through most of the time, though. I'm not sure what to make of that - ICMPv6 traffic in traceroutes is making it through fine, ICMPv6 for echo requests directly to the end host (the forum server) is not, and tcp/80 to the forum server is - right now - always down. The above is via SixXS, but HE shows exactly the same results, except for the first hops. That's not surprising given that both hand off to Telia - which is what fixed HE in the first place a couple of days ago. Now that path isn't working.

Sorry to be banging on about it.

I'm having the same issues - but strangely enough, this issue only happens when I use Safari. When using Chrome the page loads as per normal.

Huh. I've tried Safari, Firefox, and Chrome - same issue in all of them. Telnet to tcp/80 doesn't work, either.

Are you sure Chrome isn't just falling back to IPv4, which then works?
