if your instance isn't IPv6 enabled (both inbound and outbound), why the fuck not?

this is a callout post

@staticsafe well, there was that one time half of the traffic to over ipv6 just didn't arrive because my host's network was badly configured...

Sadiq @staticsafe

@chr there was change in recent Mastodon (in 2.3.3) that retries delivery over v4 if v6 fails

I think it would be safe to re-enable outbound IPv6 on and with that

@staticsafe @nightpool has always had ipv6, it never broke so i never disabled it. will look into readding an AAAA on scalybiz tho

@chr @nightpool inbound is fine but outbound is coming in over v4, which suggests a change in gai.conf address preference or something else

@staticsafe @chr yeah we did the gai.conf thing a while back iirc.

@nightpool @staticsafe oh yeah, that was our kludge to allow delivery to broken ipv6 instances before the patch, right?
