I've configured an ISATAP router to enable me to connect to IPv6 sites. The interesting thing is that it sometimes works and sometimes does not and I do not know where the problem lies. Can anybody help me fix this connectivity issue?

As a start I'm pasting what I think might be helpful here.

Using netsh it shows something like this:

Router Name            : isatap.sjtu.edu.cn
Use Relay              : default
Resolution Interval    : default
netsh interface ipv6 isatap>

Ping isatap.sjtu.edu.cn shows:

I don't see any mention of IPv6 DNS. Your pings are being sent over IPv4.

To ping the IPv6 way:

ping -6 www.kame.net
