Bing ipv6 address


  • Hi there,


    I was really excited for ipv6 day, and it worked great.  I got a traceroot of over ipv6, and I've had that in my hosts file so I could use bing over ipv6 for a while.


    It no longer seems to work, I still get to just fine, but Bing now will give me an error of:

    Access Denied

    You don't have permission to access "[no URL]" on this server.

    Reference #18.7f0f1160.1310676866.1f5c8f84


    I've tried getting the ipv6 address from (which was the cname), and that still returns back a valid ipv6 address.


    Any idea how to get back on Bing with ipv6?

  • We stopped supporting IPv6 on Bing after World IPv6 Day. More information available here.

  • So I notice that you are now supporting ipv6 on your main site.  But it doesn't appear to be supported yet on your international sites.  Any idea how long before it is supported on like

  • It's been three years. Clearly nothing is being done because it is still disabled and there has been no announcement saying otherwise. I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft removes IPv6 support from Windows 10 with the pace the engineers have been going.

  • Seems to be like this as Windows 10 uses your IPv4 interface if you have one with IPv6 and one with IPv4. On Windows 8.1 IPv6 was preferred.

    In Switzerland where I live now 25% of the internet connections have working IPv6 connections and some even have Dual-Stack Lite (Native IPv6 and IPv4 via Carrier-NAT) and these numbers won't shrink, they'll grow!

    It's a shame that so many of Microsoft services don't support IPV6, even when Microsoft itself runs out of IPv4 addresses. Especially as they boast themselfes ase being a leading supporter of IPv6. Thousands other services support IPv6 since years (Google for example supports IPv6 since 2008, 8 years!, Microsoft Bing in contrast supported it for 1 day in 2011 (IPv6 World Launch Day) for the publicity and after the event shut it down immediately and never thought again about it, which is another reason why I use Google and not Bing).
