    FYI: I am on native IPv6 trial in home, and timed out on
    July 6, approx. 5:28 p.m. PST… (as a test: came up in about 3 seconds)

    The connection has timed out

    The server at is taking too long to respond.

    * The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

    * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network

    * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
    that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

      That sort of doesn’t surprise me, I was having twitchy issues with my own connections earlier. If it is still doing it, do me a favor and ping6 it (Assuming you are on linux, or just ping -6 on windows) and traceroute6 (again linux, tracert -6 for windows). Paste the results here. At least that way I can figure out who to beat senseless. I’m gonna presume that the Hurricane Electric tunnel I’m using is “good” but not necessarily stable.

      But thanks for the heads up. I appreciate it!

        Hi Jon,

        Also unable to connect to, so I ran some checks. Don’t know if you’re still actively running a site on v6, but the AAAA record exists, so I’ll assume you do. I’m on a SixXS tunnel.

        $ sudo traceroute6 -I
