Subject [users@httpd] CombinedLog with IPv6
Date Tue, 06 Apr 2010 21:20:45 GMT

I want to setup Apache with IPv6 hosts and so I asked myself, what 
happens to REMOTE_ADDR in log files? A typical line would be - - [06/Apr/2010:23:15:32 +0200] "GET /styles/navi.css 
HTTP/1.0" 304 - "referer" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp/3.0)"

Will the first entry be a mixed typ of IPv4 and IPv6 REMOTE_ADDRs 
depending on the listening interface that the visitor connected to?

How does log analyzing software like webalizer react on IPv6 addresses?

Or is it possible to tell apache to switch to an IPv6 format everytime, 
resulting in something like ::FFFF: resp. 
0:0:0:0:0:FFFF:0C17:222D instead of
