Post subject:  IPv6 support

Hello,

I would like to know if there is a roadmap concerning IPv6 support in openl2tp.

It has come to my attention that while openl2tp implements IPv6CP and as such it is possible to provide IPv6 connectivity to peers, the openl2tp daemon in itself only listens on a IPv4 socket. I peeked through the code and noticed that all structures are IPv4 specific.

Are there any plans to add support for IPv6 as an encapsulating protocol ? If yes, is there a timeline as to when such a feature would be available ?

Regards,

Marios

There is unfortunately no work planned on this due to lack of time.

If you or anyone on this list would be interested in doing this work, please let me know - I'd be happy to provide guidance, if needed.
