Troubleshooting Xbox Live Servers Down Error Code 0x87dd0006 Issues
Of course, if problems (including error code 0x87dd0006) persist longer than a few hours for you, there are a few things you can do to make sure that it’s not an issue on your end. The most straightforward and most obvious solution is to check the Xbox Live status page. If there are any problems with the service, then this page gets updated pretty quickly with what aspects of Xbox Live are being affected.
If it looks like all services are working normally on Microsoft’s end, you can try a few things to make sure it’s not your equipment acting up. Resetting your router and your Xbox One are the two easiest things to try. Sometimes it can be as simple as that to fix this sort of problem.
Another thing to check is to make sure that you have paid your Xbox Live bill. Sometimes error code 0x87dd0006 pops up when an Xbox Live Gold subscription has expired, and you try to pay online.

If all else fails, you can try port forwarding. This page has all the instructions you need to make sure your router’s ports are open so the Xbox One can communicate with the Xbox One servers.
