IPv6 info

#1 Post by technical » 2018-09-09 07:40

Hello,
I am figuring out where I am having issues. I have recently started using IPv6 and I do confirm IPv6 from what is my ip. However, FileZilla does not recognize IP address and connection is failed. However, if I enable IPv4 everything works fine. Is there any issue with my own IPv6 configuration or any changes need to be made within FileZilla ?

FileZilla fully supports IPv6 out of the box.

The server must support IPv6, too, as well as all networks the traffic passes through. Your IPv6 connection must be native IPv6, techniques like 6to4 (=your IPv6 address starts with "2002:") will most probably cause issues.

Currently, using Dual Stack is the recommended option, until IPv6 has taken precedence over IPv4.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. The issue was resolved as the issue was from server end. Thanks once again.
