ULA only equals "no IPv6" in my opinion. This is still within the scope of determining "are we on the Internet". If the probe only has an ULA, but gets a default (or a 2000::/3, etc) route, and a connection request to a GUA IP succeeds, then yes we are, nonwithstanding through which perverse NAT66 means the host has chosen to provide the connectivity. -- With respect, Roman -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
