I will try to do the test ASAP, most probably on Tuesday. What is the equivalent of 127.0.0.1 in IPv6?
Unfortunately we have a 5 years old router which does not support IPv6. The reason we do not upgrade is because our office is so far from the telco office that we have no chance of getting a speed faster than 4Mbps which is what we already have. There are technologies like VDSL available but the difference in cost is too much.
