Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49684] New: enhancement for ipv6 implementation
Date Sun, 01 Aug 2010 22:24:11 GMT

           Summary: enhancement for ipv6 implementation
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.15
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core

Apache has 
NameVirtualHost *
VirtualHost *

But if used in dual stack ipv4 and ipv6 that could allow circuventing existing
ipv4 blocks using ipv6 connection.

You could use

NameVirtualhost ipv4-1:80
NameVirtualhost ipv4-2:80
<VirtualHost ipv4-1:80 ipv4-2:8 ipv6-1 ipv6-2 ipv6-3 ipv6-4 ipv6-5>
and another vhosts without ipv6 (uwanted in this case):
<VirtualHost ipv4-1:80 ipv4-2:80>

but ipv6 hosts are numerous. Its unpractical to to list them all (fe. for easy
swithing between those).

So what apache need is
Listen ipv4*:80
NameVirtualhost ipv4*
VirtualHost ipv6*

no one can if needed use 

<VirtualHost ipv6*>
<VirtualHost ipv4* ipv6*>
<VirtualHost ipv4*>

so you can specify if you want to listen on all ipv6 or all ipv4 or all
