I'm Major Hayden and it appears that some of the Puppy Linux boot-up scripts may be accessing one of my sites (icanhazip.com) to find out the external address a machine running Puppy Linux. Other than operating the website, I have no affiliation with Puppy Linux nor do I have a problem with the distribution using my site. Wink

You are absolutely correct. The particular script called ipinfo was written by one of our members three years ago. It contains an interesting mix of code with one of the purposes being to provide a gui for Puppy... an alternative to ifconfig at the terminal I guess, and notably, it does provide additional useful info.

The script makes a call to your website to verify an external ip address. Thanks for your understanding and support.

rackerhacker,

For your information, and on a slightly different note, I just tried to ping your site and here are my results:
Code:
ping -c 4 ipv4.icanhazip.com
PING ipv4.icanhazip.com (50.56.167.225): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 50.56.167.225: seq=0 ttl=50 time=98.361 ms
64 bytes from 50.56.167.225: seq=1 ttl=50 time=97.997 ms
64 bytes from 50.56.167.225: seq=2 ttl=50 time=97.328 ms
64 bytes from 50.56.167.225: seq=3 ttl=50 time=99.051 ms

--- ipv4.icanhazip.com ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 97.328/98.184/99.051 ms
# ping6 -c 4 ipv6.icanhazip.com
PING ipv6.icanhazip.com (2001:4800:7901:0:abc5:ba2c:0:1): 56 data bytes

--- ipv6.icanhazip.com ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

Yet, I read on your FAQ page that I should be able to ping ipv6.icanhazip.com and "should automatically see my [sic] IPv6 address returned under most situations." I just pinged ipv6.google.com successfully, so I know my IPV6 configuration is fine at my end.

I'm wondering if your server is not currently handling requests based on the Teredo protocol, or have you lost your IPV6 network somehow. I am using an open source program called Miredo to achieve Teredo tunneling, and hence, IPV6 connectivity.

I'm able to reach ipv6.icanhazip.com via ICMP and HTTP from a few different locations that I tried so I'm not sure where the problem might be. I also have some IPv6 monitoring from a few sites and they're showing connectivity is good across the board.

The IPv6 connectivity is actually native IPv6 at Rackspace (where I work) since icanhazip.com is actually load balanced with the Cloud Load Balancer product. I'll see if I can find someone on that product to do a little testing for us as well.

Thanks for putting my site to good use! I plan to keep it advertisement and tracker-free for as long as it's online. Wink

Just an update to indicate that I can connect to ipv6.icanhazip.com when I use the on-line ping tool at: http://www.subnetonline.com/ however, I am still unable to do so at the terminal.

Here are my results when using icmp with a couple of other test sites at the command line:
Code:
# ping6 -c 6 ipv6.google.com

64 bytes from 2001:4860:8005::67: seq=2 ttl=56 time=46.416 ms
64 bytes from 2001:4860:8005::67: seq=3 ttl=56 time=45.397 ms
