www.java.com

Can someone check that if they are finding www.java.com is unbelievably slow over IPv6 please.
Edit: Or possibly not working at all. nslookup gives both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, but until I forced IPv4 only for that site on my wife's PC it just wasn't responding.

Re: www.java.com

Works ok on IPv4, I don't have IPv6 to test it with.

Re: www.java.com

Working for me, and I tried it with wget (so I could force -4 and -6) and got much the same performance on both IPv4 and IPv6

wget -4 www.java.com is OK.

Re: www.java.com

I just tried both IPv4 and IPv6 in different browser tabs, and they both appear to be well !  Kiss

Re: www.java.com

Caching seems to come in to play. Just tried it on my own PC and it responded immediately but CTRL+F5 and it was very slow again.

Re: www.java.com

I'm not sure if it's related, but I've had quite a few IPv6 pages hanging today. Facebook took 30 secs to load just now (waiting for fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net).

Re: www.java.com

@ jelv - I think it's an issue their end as the site is not dual stacked anymore. I tried manually putting in the address [2a02:26f0:5a:281::1ba3] and it's not working today.

Re: www.java.com

It sounds like you might have a local issue. Having to wait 30s or so for a page to begin to load is a common symptom seen when IPv6 transport availability is assumed but it's not working correctly. Does my 'What is my IPv6 address?' page work for you? If not, do you get an IPv4 address when visiting the dual-stacked version?
Edit: I've just noticed that my PN /56 prefix changed recently. If yours has too have you updated any static IPv6 address assignments or other hardwired configuration you had in place?

Re: www.java.com

I'm having no trouble with other IPv6 sites. The link you gave gives my IPv6 address, I have the Firefox 4or6 extension and see other sites come up in IPv6.

I'd spot that because my ping graph would break!

In any case I have no assignments or hardwired configuration.

Re: www.java.com

The site just times out now if you try and access it over IPv6:

Re: www.java.com

I'm having no trouble accessing http://www.java.com using IPv6 (Hurricane Electric tunnel).
Although interestingly if I use http://java.com my browser defaults to IPv4, but http://www.java.com uses IPv6.
My Firefox "4or6" add-on shows the following addresses for http://www.java.com  (see attached screenshot below).
