IPv6 only node discovery possible?
« on: September 07, 2020, 01:44:09 PM »
Hi,

I'm very new to nedi. We have installed 1.8c, but I can not discover devices who have only an IPv6 Address. Is it possible in Version 1.9c or 2.0? Or is it still on the todo List? Can't find any Information to it ... All the post I found where from 2015,2016 and say it is not implementied for now...


thanks in advanced for any information.

Tobias

I haven't gotten around to support IPv6 for management yet. I'll observe how the needs for this evolve...

Thank you for your answer, so we will definitly need it, as we have a IPv6 only management network. Maybe we can start a poll on the forum. Is there a possiblity to do so?

This is a matter of who is willing to pay for it, rather than who votes for it ;)
A major issue is that Mysql doesn't offer native address fields (yet). Luckily I went for varbinary to store other IPv6 addresses and they seem to align:https://mysqlserverteam.com/mysql-8-0-storing-ipv6/
