Morning Snap type people,

I've got a static ipv4 address and I was wondering when Snap are going to offer static IPv6 addresses.  I run a home VM lab for fun purposes that would be useful to assign Ipv6 to all so that they can be accessed easily without port forwarding etc through the router.

What is the chance of this happening?

This is discussed in numerous threads on here so you might want to use the search box.

Last I read it's something planned for the future with no ETA.

Hi All,

Yes this is something we really want to provide, even though it might seem like a trivial service to offer there is actually a significant amount of work that we need to undertake to make this happen.

However much of this is already underway. Just for your info the systems that hand out static IPv6 addressing require an upgrade, and these are multiple clusters located across the country (and some in Australia) its quite a large job that will require extensive testing before its made live.

As soon as this is available you can be assured that Geekzone will be the first to know.
