Hey Reuban,

I can't connect via v4 or v6. Requests to either timeout.

Im coming from iinet/internode.

But I can telnet on both v6/v4 to the addresses resolved from the hostname mentioned.

imac1:~ mark$ telnet 443
Connected to idc4.deewr.gov.au.
Escape character is '^]'.

imac1:~ mark$ telnet 2406:4c00:0:245::212:44 443
Trying 2406:4c00:0:245::212:44...
Connected to 2406:4c00:0:245::212:44.
Escape character is '^]'.
