IPv6

Also, I would really like to see IPv6 support at the Lithium sites. When is that coming?

Hey @remaker, my understanding is that Lithium Community already supports IPv6 address display. What exactly are you after?


If you've found one of my posts helpful, why not give it kudos?!

And be sure to Accept as a solution if a post has answered your question.

Lithium doesn't use IPv6:

 

some examples:

 

telekomhilft.telekom.de is an alias for riokc95758.lithium.com.
riokc95758.lithium.com has address 46.19.168.115

 

forum.vodafone.de is an alias for vodafonede.lithium.com.
vodafonede.lithium.com has address 46.19.169.65

 

community.lithium.com is an alias for lithosphere.lithium.com.
lithosphere.lithium.com has address 208.74.207.22

 

riokc95758.lithium.com has no AAAA record

vodafonede.lithium.com has no AAAA record

lithosphere.lithium.com has no AAAA record

 

 

That is a really bad situation. More then 50% of the Vodafone and Telekom customers use already IPv6 in Germany, where the forum is used for.

 

Vodafone-Users mostly have a bad IPv4-connection (behind cgn).

Yes, this is also the case with T-Mobile in the US. 

 

What is the Lithium plan for IPv6?

Occasional Contributor

Not at all. Do a DNS lookup on any hosted Lithium community and you will
find only IPv4 addresses (A records) returned.

No answer from lithium, no progress.

Does anyone at Lithium even read these forums?

You are right. Lithium sells its "service" to save staff.

And they do it in their forum too. They hope the customers solve the problems of the company.

Hi

Lithium do read the boards but this is a peer 2 peer support community not a lithium support site and from reading the topic your peers have answered the question anyway.

If you need an answer from lithium have you not considered contacting your sucsess manager, or maybe your Techical account manager or better still contact support, raise a case???

Anyone who's anyone in the world of web will have a plan for IPv6 and I'm sure lithium are no different but just because they have a plan doesn't mean they are able to share it.

Unfortunately, I am not a customer, but an end user, so I have no standing to raise a case with Lithium.

 

Nevertheless, you have answered my question.
