Does anyone have any contacts with the Department of Education, 
Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) who can look into an IPv6 
specific application problem with one of their external facing websites?


It works fine if you connect to https:// via IPv4, but not if it 
resolves to the IPv6 address.  This website is used by various external 
DES and JSA providers in the community to access jobseeker client 
records.  Presumably none are yet connecting over IPv6.

Prefer to not have to go through first level helpdesk at DEEWR to be 
told that it's my "broken" network that is the cause, or to "reboot" the 
laptop, when it's very obviously an operational/configuration matter 
with the website itself.

Good to see Government Departments getting IPv6 enabled, that is, if it 
actually works.  https://www.deewr.gov.au works fine with both IPv4 and 
IPv6, so they're getting there...
