Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

@lethalsniper, when you run the test at ipv6-test.com, what are the missing elements from the test?

 

As far as the XBox goes, when you drill down into the network details on the XBox, does it show both IPV4 and IPV6 addresses?  In terms of which path its using, IVP4, IPV6 or Teredo Tunnelling, that question should be asked on an XBox forum.  I suspect that the answer will be that no one knows.  The XBox decides what path it wants to use based on some criteria that assesses each path.  That criteria doesn't appear to be publicly available, at least not from what I've seen so far.  If you do find an answer to that, please post it in this forum.  I'm sure that other XBox users have the same question in mind.

In my experience, the XBox network details are unreialble - I get no sign of IPv6 connectivity in the network settings, but visiting ipv6-test.com from Edge on XBox gives 19/20.

@djubre this should show the XBox One's IP address:

 

http://setuprouter.com/find-xbox-one-ip-address/

 

I'd be interested in knowing if it displays both IPV4 and IPV6 addresses.  Its kind of a sad statement that the XBox's network details, as viewed from within the XBox are unreliable.

Yes, that is where I was looking, and there is only IPv4 on that screen. Spent way too much time trying to debug why there is no IPv6 on XBox, then in desperation went to a test page with Edge, and what do you know...

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

hmm, so it has an IPV6 address, just doesn't show it.  Seems like a bit of an oversight, personal opinion,

I now see I'm only getting an IPv6 address, no IPv4.  However, I am able to access IPv4 sites, so at least some of 464XLAT is working.  However, tethered devices can only reach IPv4 sites.  When will they be able to get IPv6?

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

I wonder if there would be something like Prefix Delegation over LTE too.

 

Which would be very nice too see.

As I understand it, a /64 is provided as part of 464XLAT.

@JKnott,

 

We do support IPv6 for tethered devices at the network level (when the device established a bearer on the ltedata.apn for tethering, we provide both IPv4 and IPv6). Support of IPv6 for tethered devices is however not widespread and some devices support it correctly while some others don't.

I have a Google Nexus 5 and the APN is "ltemobile.apn".  Should I change that to ltedata?
