GLBasic can now be reached from an IPV6 address. Can anyone confirm that this is working properly? Also the main page?
http://drshiver.glbasic.com <-- does this work as well?

Works good!

...strangely it works for me too, it gives me shivers!

MrTAToad

Will you be updating the networking commands to cope with IP6 too ?  :P

Kitty Hello

Yes, sure. I have to see how to make that, though.
Try IPv6 in the first place? Or make new commands? Or: SOCK_SETIPVER 6 / 4?

Works fine, is it just me or is it faster when looking up DNS?

Just one command that tries IPV6/4 depending on address format?
Cheers,

I dont see the point of new commands - could just use a command to select between IP4 and IP6

Kitty Hello

problem is: When you connect to www.glbasic.com, you can do that with ipv4 _or_ ipv6.

MrTAToad

Perhaps automatically try IP6 first and if that doesn't work then revert to IP4 ?

Kitty Hello

might add a small delay for ipv4 apps.

I guess disabling IPv4 and leaving ipv 6 on from my protocol list automatically forces my connections to be ipv6 only right?
