Test your connectivity for World IPv6 Day

Weird -- at 6 am Central resolving AAAA for ipv6.juniper.net failed on my
DNS servers.  Querying the A and NS for juniper.net also resulted in a
SERVFAIL.  When I digged against Juniper's DNS servers directly  that
worked, so I flushed that juniper.net from the cache of all our DNS servers
and now it's fine.

Perhaps it was just us, but I write it here just in case anyone else saw
something similar.

Good luck with that. We discovered the PMTUD problem in February, told them
about it in March. . . and April. . . and it's still broken.

Anyway, if you have a FreeBSD or OS X box with non-tunneled IPv6
connectivity, you can do the tests yourself:
