Now that server needs to push its sound to me somehow and i wanted this to be done without thinking about firewalls, natting and the like. That is why i wanted it to work over IPv6 since this is virtually unfiltered in the networks i live in at the moment. The only problem is that i need to push the data not pull, so the server needs to know my ip. I thought: That's easy, just use dyndns.
What i didn't know is how difficult it is to get a dynamical dns provider that actually supports ipv6. I had a long list of services grabbed from some update client.
- dyndns.* would have been my first choice, if it weren't for them only doing ipv6 in beta in their non-free custom dns scheme.
- freedns.afraid.org was next and it has a ipv6 enabled dns server which you get for free but you can't update it via the client api! :(
- no-ip.com doesn't have v6 at all from what i could gather
Now onto esd :)
Update: Joshua from afraid.org answered me and yes it is supported just not officially:
"If you create a IPv4 A record, go to 'dynamic DNS' and get the update URL, you can then append &address=
