And are those other services using IPv6, too? *And* if they do, and
they work, do they also go through the proxy?
sorry for the HTML, but I am new to Gmail, so I am not sure where
switch off HTML (I hope now it is not HMTL!!!
It was still HTML, and I don't know the trick to stopping Gmail from
How do I know if other services go through IPv6???
Using "netstat -tu" to show current TCP and UDP connections might be all
you need to do. You can use additional options with netstat for more
information (such as showing what process/program is using the port).
e.g. netstat -ntu
Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.2:57310 192.168.1.2:143 ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.2:57311 192.168.1.2:143 ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 ::ffff:192.168.1.2:143 ::ffff:192.168.1.2:57310 ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 ::ffff:192.168.1.2:143 ::ffff:192.168.1.2:57311 ESTABLISHED
The first two are IPv4, the latter two are IPv6. Note the much longer
IP address, with colons between digits. Ignore the last colon-prefixed
ones (57310, 143, etc.), they're the port numbers being used with those
and why on the other network PC everything is o.k, wget, curl yum
Chances are, that if other things are working, that they're not using
IPv6 addresses at that time. I only mention IPv6 because your prior
comments about explictly telling wget to use it, or not, and the
differing results. To be able to use it, the entire network path
between you and it would need to support it.
I've seen the following about disabling ipv6 in a prior message on this
mailing list (a different topic). Maybe you might want to try it.
Add "alias net-pf-10 off" to /etc/modprobe.conf and reboot
When debugging DNS issues, you probably want to try playing with the
"dig" command, rather than other commands. You'll get more specific
information about the name resolution.
e.g. dig download.fedora.redhat.com
; <<>> DiG 9.3.1 <<>> download.fedora.redhat.com

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
