After installing SMART FTP version 1.0.981 to run in IPv6
I choose IPv6 in Settings
When I try to put an IPv6 address by
I get the message : "hostname unknown , cannot connect"
When I try an IPv4 serveur with the IPv4 address : it works , I don't have this message
I don't have any DNS server and the DNS address is not fullfilled on the interface
The machine is Windows 2000 SP4 . The version installed on a Windows XP machine works
Thanks for your help in advance

You need to install the IPv6 stack on your Windows 2000 system.

Please see the kb at

Actually the IPv6 stack is installed on my W2K PC but it doesn't work as well. . I can ping my FTP server from my client but when I try to connect, smartFTP replies
unknown host
connection closed

and if I try to capture frames with a sniffer (Ethereal), it seems there is no FTP frame sent :?: .
any idea :idea:

Hello ...

In this case I guess the IPv6 support in SmartFTP is not fully working on Windows 2000 - anymore.

We will address the problem in the next major build.

Thanks a lot for reporting.
