Re: DHCPv6, was: Re: IPv6 Finally gets off the ground
Thus spake "Jeroen Massar" <jeroen@xxxxxxxxx>
But for the rest it all seems pretty fine to me...
They do the same thing for requests that don't involve a CNAME, so they're either choking on the AAAA query or a NOERROR response in general; it's hard to tell which since I can only see one side of their box. I also don't know how they react when you try to contact a site that _does_ have AAAA records, since no major content site has them (which is a whole 'nother discussion).
What's weird is that they don't just return a 0-record NOERROR when you do the follow-up A query, which would be the most logical failure mode -- they return an authoritative answer of 0.0.0.1 instead.
Of course, dealing with idiot consumers on a regular basis, their tech support folks insist the problem is on the user's machine and that it's a bug in their v6 stack, despite Ethereal captures showing the bad DNS response packets coming from their box...
