Re: BerkeleyLUG, have AC power, Wi-Fi & Internet ...

Quoting tom r lopes (tomrlopes@gmail.com):

If you're on an IPv4-only network and your Linux host operates a dual
IPv4/IPv6 stack, you can run into a situation where your host
continually attempts an IPv6 socket, waits for timeout, connection
fails, and only then attempts fallback to IPv4.  This is super-annoying,
dumb behaviour, of course, but might (or might not) be what you
perceived as 'maybe a bit of latency'.

To test, do an experimental 'dig' across the Internet with the IPv4-only 
flag.  It's the '-4' flag, and there's a corresponding '-6' flag for

If that test reveals your stuck in the dumb-fallback scenario, there 
are ways to force your stack (for that time period) to do IPv4-only.
I'm not going to spend time looking that up now, yet again, but it's 
not difficult.
