Using Windows 2008 R2 Server - Teredo didn't want to work so used tunnelbroker

Though when I get operation timed out from xsnews normally I can't ping ipv6 addresses either so maybe it is a tunnelbroker issue

(I am still seeing the old style output on the test page)

To check your IPv6, you can add newszilla6.xs4all.nl to your SAB newsservers. If SAB can't access newszilla6 either, it's indeed probably your IPv6 connection (and not xsnews).

If you use IPv6 other than miredo/teredo on vista/7, you should be able to visit ipv6.google.com ... If that doesn't work, your IPv6 is down ...

In all cases, you should be able to visit http://[2a00:1450:8001::68]/ (clickable URL: [url=http://[2a00:1450:8001::68]/]http://[2a00:1450:8001::68]/[/url] )
EDIT: pity: the forum parses the litteral incorrectly, so the URL is not clickable. You must copy-paste the litteral URL into your browser.

Hi there

I was wondering if anyone else is unable to reach reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl  (destination unreachable)
ping6 ipv6.google.com is working, so its not my ipv6 config i guess.
Any ideas?

Cheers,
Bender

Easy additional test: can you reach newszilla6.xs4all.nl?

This is the result of my test script:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~$ /home/sander/check-ipv6-servers-via-interfaces.sh

spawn telnet -b 2001:1b60:1010:1:native:native:native:fff3 reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl nntp
201 reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl NNRP Service Ready (no posting).

spawn telnet -b 2001:0:teredo:64c:20a1:50f1:abec:59d7 reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl nntp

spawn telnet -b 2001:1b60:1010:1:native:native:native:fff3 newszilla6.xs4all.nl nntp
201 dreader33.news.xs4all.nl NNRP Service Ready - [email protected] (no posting).

spawn telnet -b 2001:0:teredo:64c:20a1:50f1:abec:59d7 newszilla6.xs4all.nl nntp

[email protected]:~$ 
Meaning:
only over native IPv6, I can reach xsnews and newszilla6. Strange; on my machine at home, I can reach newszilla6 over teredo/miredo ...

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~$ ping6 newszilla6.xs4all.nl
PING newszilla6.xs4all.nl(newszilla.ipv6.xs4all.nl) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from newszilla.ipv6.xs4all.nl: icmp_seq=1 ttl=59 time=126 ms
64 bytes from newszilla.ipv6.xs4all.nl: icmp_seq=2 ttl=59 time=39.6 ms
64 bytes from newszilla.ipv6.xs4all.nl: icmp_seq=3 ttl=59 time=42.3 ms
that works perfectly (using miredo btw)

edit: now it's also destination unreachable for newszilla6.xs4all.nl
seems like the filter out 6-to-4 tunnels ?

Can you add it as a newsserver in SABnzbd; that gives more useful testing information

hey thanks for your help man.

after some extensive googling i switched the remlab teredo server to the microsoft teredo server in /etc/miredo.conf and now the adresses are reachable again after i restarted the miredo daemon.

much love!

bender78, sander: Thanks for mentioning teredo/miredo. I did not know that protocol and tool before. Up to now I had a lot of problems with IPv6, sabnzbd, ... in linux. It just did not download all the time, despite IPv6 worked (sixxxs). With Miredo I get at least about 500 KB/s.

Cheers,

I've never had any issues with Xsnews this days maybe because i use sixxs now since gogonet sometimes block traffic to port 119 http://gogonet.gogo6.com/forum/topics/i ... newservers .

Maybe this is the reason why some of you guys had issues the past days , for me reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl has been working flawlessly the past two weaks at least .

The majority of the issues with XS News ar ebecause XS News are blocking the Amsterdam Go6 server. It is not go6 blocking port 119 as previously thought.

Hi guys.
I haven't logged into the forum for quite some time.
Especially since Sab+ hit 0.5.x.
It's working like a clock!
Well, IPv6 from Hurricane Electric has also helped a lot ALONG with these free IPv6 servers that were published in this thread.
Now, the original post (sticky) was last edited early 2010 and we're already in 2011.
Also, the original post has a link to a script that is not working.
So, any new free news servers out there after Apr'2010?
Cheers :)
SABnzbd 0.6.0Alpha11 on Fedora 14-64bit laptop.
Usenet-News, TeraNews, newszilla6.xs4all.nl and reader.ipv6.xsnews.nl.
IPv6 connections powered by Hurricane Electric.
Can pull 30Mbit nntp on a 30Mbit FTTH link.
