    Use resolver addresses from the following list to configure the IPv6 side:
    ::ffff:d043:dedc ::ffff:d043:dcde ::ffff:d043:dede ::ffff:d043:dcdc

    OpenDNS does not provide content filtering when using IPv6. See [here].

     

    We, unfortunately, need to disable IPv6 at the eero Gateway to force all internet traffic to occur over the IPv4 network so that content filtering can occur.

    Alternatively, use the revolver addresses I listed above.

    rotblitz Are you saying that the IPv6 addresses you listed above support content filtering?

     

    If so, then the KB article needs to be updated.

    It currently says:

    "Currently, it is not possible for users to register IPv6 addresses in the OpenDNS Dashboard. Custom content filtering cannot be set for IPv6 traffic."

    Also, does the OpenDNS Updater application support IPv6 so that OpenDNS know the IPv6 of the network to apply the correct content filtering?

    Yes, they do take care of your dashboard settings.

    I don’t worry about the KB article. OpenDNS are in the process to support this, same as before with Umbrella. This may or may not include the Updater app.

    rotblitz What do you mean by "are in the process to support this". Does it work today or not?

     

    Also, based on this, my original comments are correct and content filtering is not supported when using IPv6: https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/245247727-What-are-the-IPv6-addresses-for-OpenDNS-

    It does not work today, because you cannot register your IPv6 address at the dashboard.  Therefore your DNS traffic must go over IPv4 which is been done by the resolver addresses I listed, when using dual-stack connection IPv4/IPv6.
