Enabling IPv6 For Your .NET Application

archived comments edit

RSS Bandit Developer Torsten points out a very long and arduous process for enabling IPv6 in your .NET application. Here is the extremely tedious set of instructions.

A while ago one user complains about RSS Bandit was not running with installed/configured IPv6 on a windows machine. Today I got the answer (by mail from Frank Fischer, Microsoft Germany - thanks again!): openĀ machine.config located at C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.xxxx\CONFIG and change the XML tag:

<!-- <ipv6 enabled="false" /> -->

to:

<ipv6 enabled="true" />

This change allows the framework to parse and resolve IPv6 addresses. So any .NET application will be IPv6 enabled, not only RSS Bandit (but also ;-)

Gee, that seems like a lot of work to me. I'm going to reward myself with a beer. Thanks Torsten!
