    Alternatively to disabling IPv6 connectivity it may be enough to ensure that your DNS traffic goes out to OpenDNS over IPv4.  You may want with trying from the following DNSv6 resolver addresses in your IPv6 DNS server settings:

    ::ffff:d043:dede
    ::ffff:d043:dcdc
    ::ffff:d043:dedc
    ::ffff:d043:dcde

    Using this method you may be able to retain your IPv6 connectivity (e.g. for web traffic), else you will face troubles with accessing IPv6-only destinations.

    Everyone should be *using* IPv6 by now, not avoiding it as this article suggests, and not faking it by using IPv4 addresses that just look like IPv6 addreses as @rotblitz suggests.

    Yes, agreed.  Cisco/Umbrella/OpenDNS are in the process of implementing this.

    Btw, this was not faking, but a viable workaround for the time being.
