Hi,

I use IPv6 Connections and i'd like to know if you could make Smart FTP, the first IPv6 Graphical FTP Client under windows.
More and More people use IPv6 protocol and all along the days, newbies ask me how they can download from IPv6 FTP servers.

There is the ftp.exe client from MS wich can connect to them, but in line command only.

If you need IPv6 connectivity, you can contact me ;)


(I've posted a long time ago about IPv6 here)

What FTP servers beside MS FTP Server do support IPv6?

And are they tested as well?

The most Linux and *BSD FTP servers are IPv6 ready : proftpd, pureftpd for example.

They work very much and are use in production.

I tried to use a bouncer to etablish a link between IPv6 server and Smart FTP but PORT and PASV aren't recognise in IPv6.

Smart FTP   ---------  bouncer --------- FTP

               IPv4                IPv6

"500 PORT command not allowed for IPv6 sessions, use EPRT instead."

If you need aswers i'm here.


PS : escuse my english, i'm french ;)

from the main services on my linux box only the postfix isnt ipv6-capable (only a recompile away ;) but i didnt find the time/need for it :] )

and running ipv6 on windows xp with a linux as router is really simple :)

http://msdn.microsof...lications_2.asp for information about IPv6 on Winsock

On the other hand, http://www.hs247.com is dead.

You can obtain a tunnel :

first http://www.hs247.com/ isnt down. :) works well for me ;)

host www.hs247.com ; host -t AAAA www.hs247.com
www.hs247.com has address 62.80.104.210
www.hs247.com has AAAA address 2001:730::1:37


maybe your ipv6 route to hs247 is broken ;)

mb if you need some stable and fast v6 link drop me a mail or PM. :)

yes this looks interesting....

Mat did you try to use that MS proggie that "converts" ur app to IPv6 compliant?

P.S. if introducing IPv6 compliance will break stuff on win9x then it's not worth it.

The MS proggie advertises us of some problems but don't don't correct all incomptatibilities.

But, there is a developper of MS on microsoft.public.platformsdk.networking.ipv6 who can help you

i think it is ;)
win9x should be burned out ;)
i personally dont use win9x since 1996
even MS is pushing IPv6 introduction. its newest peer2peer solution is based on IPv6 too.

just my PI cents :)

Requirements for ipv6 enabled functions (getaddrinfo) and structs (SOCKADDR_STORAGE ) are as following:

Client: Included in Windows XP.
Server: Included in Windows Server 2003.

That should explain pretty much everything.

hi

Client: Included in Windows XP.
Server: Included in Windows Server 2003.

That should explain pretty much everything.


thats not fully correct:

ipv6 support is available for Windows 2000 and higher

and i have a running an psybnc with ipv6 listening too (is the only ipv6 service i have installed so far)

TCP    [::]:3184              [::]:0                 LISTENING       0

and successfully connected from my linux box to it.
 TCP    [<hidden>]:3184  [<hidden>]:3667  ESTABLISHED     0

all running on a windows XP box. the same should work on windows 2000 with the ipv6 stack installed too.

see http://www.microsoft.com/ipv6

p.s.: mat if you want the real ips to verify pm me. :)

I probably did my first ipv6 connection under win2k at the time you were playing space invaders :-)

According to this page:
http://msdn.microsof...6_support_2.asp

"name resolution and address conversion for IPv6 addresses must use Windows Sockets 2-specific functions. Many new functions have been introduced to enable Windows Sockets 2 applications to take advantage of IPv6, including the getaddrinfo and getnameinfo functions"

Thus name resolution is probably only possible with WinXP / Win 2003.

If the demand for IPv6 support increases we'll consider implementing it.

damn i dont remind when i got my first tunnel. too much time passed. :)
so lets stop this :)

mat am i wrong or wasnt there a winsock2 update for win9x too? so the ipv6 compliant applications should at least work fine with ipv4 on win9x too?
