ipv6 will be necessary to provide access to services on the internet. As we are an ISP and MSSP, it stands to reason that when our customers need ipv6, we need it already in place.
That field used to be 32 char for the legacy tables!
We have been working on this issue and you should start to see updates to the tables so that they can accomodate IPv6 addresses in the ESUs. I believe the changes started in the October ESU.
I finally got a new ESU installed and we recovered from the previous issue I reported with ipv6 formatted ipv4 addresses. I've not taken a gander for IPv6 addresses, because seeing them will depress me in that they should not be there.
