Comparison of IPv6 support in common applications
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This is a comparison of applications in regard to their support of the IPv6 protocol.
|Android Studio||Windows||No||Cannot download SDK components from behind a NAT64, requires native IPv4|
|Arduino Studio||Windows||No||Cannot download board definitions from behind a NAT64, requires native IPv4|
|Avid Sibelius License Server||Windows||all||No||The license server only binds to and listens on IPv4|
|Avigilon Control Center||Windows||all||No||Neither the server, client or cameras support IPv6|
|Bromcom MIS||Windows||all||Partial||Bromcom MIS will work on an IPv6 only network, however the Access Control Lists do not support IPv6 and have to be removed from a users account directly in the SQL database. Bromcom do not officially support IPv6.|
|Mozilla Firefox||Windows||46tested||Yes||Supports IPv6 addresses under Windows using brackets as [IPv6]:port|
|Microsoft Internet Explorer||Windows||11||Yes||Supports IPv6 addresses under Windows using brackets as [IPv6]:port|
|Windows File Explorer||Windows||tested with Win 7–10, maybe XP||Yes||Supports IPv6 addresses in the address field, using \\fe80--abcd-eff0.ipv6-literal.net using dashes instead of colons|
|Microsoft Exchange Server||Windows||2013+||Yes|
|Microsoft SQL Server||Windows||2005+||Yes|
|Microsoft Windows Server Update Services||Windows||4.0||Yes||WSUS will work in an IPv6 only network, however Microsoft's Windows Update servers are only available over IPv4 so either an IPv6 transition mechanism will be needed, or a proxy server.|
|PaperCut||Windows||all||Partial||The PaperCut client supports IPv6 only networks where the IPv4 stack is not bound to a network adapter, however it will crash if the IPv4 stack is uninstalled. The PaperCut printer port does not support IPv6.|
|Planet eStream||Windows||test v6.10.05.10+||Partial||The bulk of Planet eStream works perfectly over IPv6. The main feature that doesn't work is streaming video. Video playback will fall back to HTTP over IPv6 and you can't live stream from the encoder application, although it will upload recorded videos (a special IPv6 build of the encoder was provided / unsure if this is generally available at the moment). You also can't stream live TV over IPv6.|
|Sage 200||Windows||v2015 and v2016||Partial||Sage 200 mostly works in an IPv6 environment as it's based on Microsoft IIS. Activation will not work over IPv6 or using a proxy server so the Sage application server needs to have an IPv4 address to activate (Sage 200 offline activation has to be redone every 30 days!). The Sage 200 task launch will also fail to run if the IPv6 stack is uninstalled.|
|Skype for Business||Windows||all||Partial||The Skype for Business client supports IPv6 only networks where the IPv4 stack is not bound to a network adapter, however it will crash if the IPv4 stack is uninstalled.|
|Smoothwall SWG, UTM and WAM||Linux||all||No|
|SolarWinds TFTP Server||Windows||10+||Yes|
|SolidNetwork License Manager||Windows||all||No|
|Spotify Windows UWP app||Windows||No||No network connectivity detected by the app from behind NAT64, requires native IPv4|
|Steam Client||Windows, OSX, Linux||all||No||Cannot log in on IPv6-only network. If logged in on an IPv4 network and moved to an IPv6 network, Steam Client goes offline.|
|Netflix app||LG WebOS, Xbox OS||all||No||Hardcoded to send DNS requests to 220.127.116.11, or the DHCPv4 designated DNS server as a fallback if 18.104.22.168 is unreachable. Only requests A records, not AAAA, meaning it is completely dependent on IPv4. LG WebOS and other LG WebOS applications run fine without IPv4 access, so it is not the fault of the operating system.|
|Thermomix||Thermomix OS||all||No||Hangs if connecting to NAT64 Wi-Fi network; no connectivity.|
|Microsoft Store||Xbox OS||all||Partial||Xbox Series X - can browse the store using IPv6-only connection with NAT64, but downloads get stuck in the queue until native IPv4 is available|
