Curl with ipv6 not working by default

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am trying to curl ipv6 addresses, 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 addresses. 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 wit (HowTos)
