Comparison of Linux IPv6 implementations


Hi

http://www.bieringer.de/linux/IPv6/s...ributions.html contains a great table comparing the implementation of IPv6 features in several Linux distributions. the problem is that it is over 4 years old. Any idea where I could find a more up-to-date resource?

Thanks!

A lot has changed in 4 years; I am not aware of any current distribution that doesn't ship with an IPv6 enabled kernel.

Agreed. I was looking for an up-to-date table, showing wehther the clients, daemons, tools, etc. were IPv6-capable.

Thanks

Sorry, perhaps I should have been more clear. As long as the kernel supports IPv6, individual application support is trivial. So almost all software now supports IPv6, it will be very rare to find a maintained Linux application that is not offering IPv6 support.

You can see a list of popular applications (on all platforms) and their IPv6 support on Wikipedia.
