    Why do you request this?  It is in effect already!  You just have to use the right syntax for IPv6, not the one for IPv4.

    dig +short -6 myip.opendns.com aaaa @resolver1.ipv6-sandbox.opendns.com

    All good!  It seems you forgot to request the AAAA record, and you sent the query via IPv4...

    Thanks for this. I requested it because I was speaking with support and asked if myip.opendns.com supported IPv6. I was told by support it didn't and to file a feature request. I didn't bother to check it out. My bad.

    Yeah, support may not know what the developers have done.
