Should be accessible with disctemp.starturtle.net port 23.
Alas, disctemp.starturtle.net (126.96.36.199) is not accessible for me. "operation timed out. unable to connect to remote host." (from new jersey usa) -- Jaceth.
The main address discworld.starturtle.net (188.8.131.52) is down for me, too, but the backup link disctemp.starturtle.net (184.108.40.206) works for me at 17:37 London time. -- Jeanie (talk) 12:37, 18 September 2020 (EDT)
There are several so called IPv6 brokers that can allow one to access the IPv6 network without having an IPv6 enabled internet connection. Some are free. Some require registration.
See the IPv6 page for information.
