OpenDNS and IPv6

In general OpenDNS works just fine, but for some reason, they return IPv4 adresses when a hostname only has IPv6 addresses. This makes e.g. fail.

You can test this by opening /Applications/Utilities/Terminal?.app and run the command:


Good output is like: is an alias for has IPv6 address 2001:4860:a003::68

Bad output with IPv4 address is like: is an alias for has address has IPv6 address 2001:4860:a005::68
