Issues accessing Looking Glass website over ipv6

Hi there,

A user on freenode # lookingglass (tomreyn) is having trouble accessing (or pinging) the official Looking Glass website over ipv6. I’m seeing the same issue from a well-connected ipv6 network.

workpc:~ wings$ nc -vv -6 -w5 lookingglasswebsite 80
nc: connectx to lookingglasswebsite port 80 (tcp) failed: Operation timed out

vs doing it with ipv4

workpc:~ wings$ nc -vv -4 -w5 lookingglasswebsite 80
<snip>
Connection to lookingglasswebsite port 80 [tcp/http] succeeded!

I had to edit the command output as this website doesn’t allow you to post anything that looks like a link.

Thanks, I am currently out of the country so I won’t be able to look into this for about a week I am sorry, but thanks for reporting the issue.

Sorry, I forgot to come back to this. It has been resolved :slight_smile:
