I have setup a web server (Nginx) and assigned an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address to it. In the DNS I have set an A record and an AAAA record. Now, I need to check whether its working. I need to check whether an IPv6 only client can view my site. Whether an IPv4 only client can view the site (I think IPv4 only clients can view because im IPv4 ).

How can I do this? I only have IPv4!

If you only have IPv6 then how are you posting on this site? – Mark Henderson Aug 27 '12 at 4:12
This is pretty basic - you need IPv4 connectivity to check IPv4 functionality. If you don't have it, get a friend with IPv4 connectivity to test the IPv4 address. Or use a site like – voretaq7 Aug 27 '12 at 4:12
@voretaq7 Really sorry for the mistake.. Not IPv6... I have only IPv4 connectivity! – THpubs Aug 27 '12 at 4:53
@EApubs . . . so replace "4" with "6" in my comment (and strike the part about as I don't think they support v6 yet) -- this is pretty basic stuff. – voretaq7 Aug 27 '12 at 5:16
