Curl with ipv6 not working by default

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I am trying to curl ipv6 adresses, but without success. If i try lets say: curl https://google.com I wait for a timeout and get network unreachable If i force ipv4, everything is fine. curl -4 https://google.com Then again if i force ipv6, like this: curl -6 https://google.com i get: curl: (7) Failed to connect to 2800:3f0:4001:806::1005: Network is unreachable I suppose it has to do somehow with resolving ipv6 adresses. I saw that on other computers that have a newer version of some linux distro, these requests go fine, so i'm guessing it has to do something with (HowTos)
