Remotely connect to a Mac via SSH using iCloud's network
Authored by: pookacka on Aug 10, '12 09:25:34AM

My ISP's DNS server is unable to resolve the address with the above formula. I've double-checked that it should be correct, including checking the iCloud-reported computer name and member number. I don't think that's an IPv6 issue - any ideas?

Same here; can't get it to resolve for some reason.

I found out you can find the IPv6 address via: dns-sd -G v6 [machine-name].[accountnumber].members.btmm.icloud.com. Then you can copy/paste the IPv6 address and use it with ssh: ssh -6 2001:4860:4860:0000:8888 However, I still got an error message "operation timed out".
