Actually I found this interesting last year. My sister found she was unable
to get any response from a server I host that has and ipv6 address when she tried
accessing the web server from home.

I discovered her router/isp was choosing to use the ipv6 as it was available
and I had not configured the web server to respond on ipv6.  When I
configred it she could access the service again.  Looking at the config on
her adsl modem it was natively using it all the way through as it was
available.  Pretty sure this was internode (I ended up tracking down a
similar behaviour in my own NBN connection if I changed some options to ISP
preferred defaults)
