Ya the licensing addon doesn't account for both IPv4 and IPv6 for the same service. If you reissue those it will only detect the first IP it sees which is really a pain in the ass.
Because now my WHMCS install works fine so long as the user has a IPv6 connection and if they don't then WHMCS throws a invalid error claiming the license is no good when it is.
This needs to be addressed very soon as more and more people, especially from the EU, are coming from a IPv6 address but almost all North/South America is still living in the IPv4 dark ages.
Uhh I'm not sure where you are getting your info from but the majority of people in the EU have native IPv6 routes. That means its not a tunnel. It's the majority in North America that is using 6to4 tunnels.
And everything OS wise now supports IPv6 including Windows XP and newer. XP you could install IPv6 as a option where as 7 its automatically installed.
All linux distros have offered IPv6 for the last 3-4 years and all major software like apache has IPv6 coded in for the last 5 years.
I understand that there is client support on all the OS's, however, ISP's are still dropping IPv4 addresses to their clients. Until there is MUCH more saturations in the residential IPv6 market, we wont see the servers using it.
Erm, I said they wouldnt be able to access 99% of the internet, make that more like 97% of the internet.
only 3% of internet zones have AAAA records in them. Unless those IPv6 users are happy with only using 3% of the internet, they are using a 6 to 4 tunnel.
Oh so you mean that all point-to-point protocols for IPv6 is using a tunnel... that's partially true.
In the EU users that have native IPv6 are really using IPv6 -- but when they want to connect to a IPv4 address the ISP reroutes that via a IPv4 tunnel that does not mean the user(s) installed a IPv4/6 tunnel.
I have a native IPv6 address route however when I can only access a IPv4 address my ISP re-routes me through their own tunnel, I don't.
In any case this thread pertains to the fact that the licensing addon does not recongize both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and that needs to be addressed regardless how anyone gets to the website.

Its the first step in the process (as I previously explained), before we'll see major routers/webhosts/etc deploying it.
Frank the thread is about needing IPv6 to work for the licensing addon regardless of how they are using IPv6. The software and apache both support IPv6 and thus so should the licensing addon.
