    You are clearly not using OpenDNS, but most likely your ISP's DNSv6 service:

    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 2605:a601:8015:700::1

    This is propagated by your router to your computer.

    You must configure the FamilyShield addresses ::ffff:d043:de7b and ::ffff:d043:dc7b in the IPv6 settings on your router.  If this is not possible, you can configure them in the IPv6 settings of your computer, interface "Wireless Network Connection".

    I updated with those addresses and no change. I think it might be an issue with the Google Fiber routers not using the IPv6 addresses. If I turn off IPv6 driver on my wireless network, it will work since I have the IPv4 addresses listed on the router settings as well. I was hoping to globally have it set on the router for my home, but it looks like IPv6 will have to be done per device =(

    Yes, you can configure this also on the end user devices.  Alternatively, disable IPv6 on the router.  The downside is that you cannot access IPv6-only destinations then.  But there are only a few of those anyway yet.  You may never become aware of them.

    2019 and this still hasn't been resolved and was written back in 2013?

    is the lack of functioning feature rich dns the result of opendns selling its soul to cisco

    now opendns sucks just like cisco internet modems and tv boxes

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenDNS

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisco_Systems

    since ciscodns/opendns are deprecated everyone may as well use google dns

    https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

    https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/security

    Statistics

    Google collects statistics about IPv6 adoption in the Internet on an ongoing basis.

    IPv6 adoption

    https://www.google.com/intl/en/ipv6/statistics.html

    Per-Country IPv6 adoption

    https://www.google.com/intl/en/ipv6/statistics.html#tab=per-country-ipv6-adoption

    anyone have any suggestions for more options in dns providers? because 2013-2019 = doa dead on arrival 10 year anniversary soon without any support don't forget to put the company logo by useless in the dictionary

    what it is like getting support with ciscodns/opendns

    OpenDNS is a gratis service which offers people some facilities. If you do not like it, you are free to leave it.

    There is the paid service Umbrella which is really the point of OpenDNS.

    Google DNS does not filter results. Of course, there are other services which filter DNS calls for security and/or porn.

    I'm pretty sure that the "filtering" service was still called OpenDNS when this thread started back in 2013, so I think that's what icekiss69 was referring to. As an old OpenDNS (now Umbrella) customer, I'm also wondering just how long this is going to take. Fortunately I'm able to configure the OpenDNS ipv4 servers directly in my ipv6 modem to access the ipv6 network with Umbrella filtering, but I'd really like to be able to configure (real) ipv6 addresses for my DNS servers.

    This seems to be an entirely solvable problem to me. The big change is that instead of filtering based on a single ipv4 address, it needs to be based on the range of addresses assigned to a customer by their ISP. I'd be interested in an update on exactly why this is taking Cisco so long.

    Yep, this is already fully implemented in Umbrella, see https://support.umbrella.com/hc/en-us/articles/230563727

    And what I've heard from the developer manager responsible for this project, they are working for making this available in OpenDNS too.

    Well, not "fully implemented". There is a big caveat on that support page:

    "For network identities, both IPv4 and IPv6 IP addresses are supported; however, dynamic IP addresses are only supported for IPv4."

    As a regular retail customer unwilling to shell out for a static address. I need dynamic IP support. I realize it gets very complicated over ipv6. The OpenDNS dynamic updater as well is still an ipv4 only tool (I just reinstalled it to check).

    I'm a bit confused about this distinction between Umbrella and OpenDNS as well. As I mentioned above, I signed up for OpenDNS years ago, and after the Umbrella migration have been logging into umbrella.com -> umbreella.opendns.com . However, my dashboard is at dashboard.opendns.com and I see nothing suggesting IPv6 support. My "Add Network" dialog looks like this (the IP Address dropdown allows various IPv4 subnets, but no IPv6 alternatives):
