  • Basic IPv6 Resolver Configuration in Ubuntu

    Most DNS servers these days are glad to resolve IPv6 addresses from clients who send the queries packaged in IPv4 packets.  In the grand scheme of things the DNS servers don’t care how you sent the question, they just care about the question.  And because almost everybody still relies heavily upon IPv4, most of us who are trying to push toward IPv6 have been satisfied to get our AAAA resolutions using IPv4 as the transport.  But if you want to start being more ‘pure’ in your IPv6 deployments you need to give your system the ability to not only send IPv6 packets out into the Internet, you also need to learn where it is you are going via IPv6 as well.  Put plainly, you need to configure your system to get its IPv6 name resolution using IPv6 packets.
