Subject Re: The state of IPv6 support
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 08:20:32 GMT

I recently discussed this with Funs as we want this as well. As a first step, we could build
6to4 support on the VPC. Everything behind it can then still be IPv4 while stuff is reachable
over IPv6 as well. 

This is a first step only. In the end we need native support for IPv6 within CloudStack as
you described. As that is a big project, splitting it up might be wise. 

Would this help?
