Nextcloud forum ridiculously slow

Hey @meonkeys
can you please post details about your connection? Are you using IPv4 or IPv6 at home/other places ?

Howdy!

Sure! I’ve done this before. I’ll make some time later to re-share / dig up links later or maybe you’ll beat me to it.

I haven’t paid close attention. Why might this make a difference?

It might make a difference, yes. I‘ve seen fast IPv6 connectivity and very slow IPv4 connectivity. So would be good to know if that’s the same difference for you (IPv4 slow at home, but IPv6 fast on the road)

Sorry, IPv6 newbie here. Can you walk me through this?

Looks like I am using only IPv4 on my desktop and IPv6 is disabled. My phone seems to use IPv6 too, and sometimes the forum is fast on my phone (in a mobile web browser).

Is there an easy way to test? I tried turning on IPv6 then doing time curl --ipv6 --compressed -o /dev/null https://help.nextcloud.com/assets/discourse-XYZ.js (using a real value for XYZ) but it just says curl: (7) Couldn't connect to server.

If it is disabled, the curl won’t work if you force ipv6. If your provider supports it, it is perhaps enough to just enable it in your system. Sometimes you need to enable it in your router or some web-interface from your ISP. Check first, if your ISP supports ipv6.

Besides what @tflidd said, you could try to create a access point from your mobile device to use the LTE connection (that usually does support IPv6) and then do a test with IPv6 (default then) and force IPv4 to compare the results.
