Interesting. The resolver(5) man page makes no mention of IPv6 --- by
implication it expects IPv4 dot notation addresses in
/etc/resolv.conf. That would seem to be contradicted by the libc
source code in src/lib/libc/net/res_init.c, and the change logs at
Although there is also src/contrib/bind/lib/resolv/res_init.c
which isn't compiled into the default libc as far as I can tell.
Documentation seems to be in src/share/examples/IPv6/USAGE. However,
in summary it seems that adding
nameserver abcd:ef00::001 <- your nameserver address here..
to your /etc/resolv.conf and querying against a BIND9 server
configured using the listen-on-v6 directive in named.conf should be
sufficient. If you've installed tha BIND9 port, look at
I haven't got access to a setup with sufficient IPv6 capability to be
able to test that properly though.
