I searched the documentation and this forum, but did not find any satisfying hints:
are there plans to support IPv6 in OCS?
For the inventory?
For the communication between client and server?
The latter could work in many cases,already (especially Linux), but the Windows binaries probably need some work and a recompile.
I don't know how to place this question correctly, as it is a general question in the first run, which then can be broken down into detail matters.
This questions arises from the following story: our company uses OCS for almost three years now, we also made some own additions and patches which didn't make it back into the community from different reasons. But now we are participant in a European Commision part-funded project regarding the introduction of IPv6 in governmental networks.
As our work to enable OCS for IPv6 would be part of this project we could develop a set of patches and contributions to enable OCS for IPv6 (server part, extend data model, tables, GUI, ..., and in parts the client (Linux probably, Windows as workaround via plugins).
We'd appreciate very much any feedback reagrding this (from my point of feeling bigger) issue from the core developers as we would like to do this work together and coordinated with you.
So we strongly hope for feedback.
