Mine is Windows 7 both on laptop(home) and PC(office). I've also tested checked this from a school on Win8 PC . Why I can't ping any IPV6 address?

I've disabled Eset nod32 completely but still:

>ping ipv6.google.com
Ping request could not find host ipv6.google.com. Please check the name and try again

While nslookup(Win7) is working fine:

>nslookup ipv6.google.com
Server:  google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address:  8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    ipv6.l.google.com
Address:  2404:6800:4007:805::200e
Aliases:  ipv6.google.com

**IPCONFIG ** (Win8 PC)

>ipconfig /all

  • What's the exact result when passing the domain name to nslookup? – Mario Aug 16 '15 at 6:07

    do you have actual ipv6 support from your ISP? What's the output of ipconfig? – Journeyman Geek Aug 17 '15 at 3:00
-1

you need to put the -6 option

ping -6 ipv6.google.com

  • AFAIK that just forces IPv6 to be preferred, but it's not an absolute requirement. Not 100% sure without looking it up though. – Mario Aug 16 '15 at 6:07
  • And it doesn't fix the problem. I can reproduce it. – DavidPostill Aug 16 '15 at 7:41
  • Same response with -6 option. – user5858 Aug 16 '15 at 8:17
