Ticket #18 (closed enhancement: fixed)
IPv6 transport for pdns_recursor
|Reported by:||berni@…||Owned by:||somebody|
I'm missing a (to me being an IPv6 guy very important) feature in pdns_recursor: IPv6 transport for DNS queries. This can actually be split up into two probably quite independent tasks:
* IPv6 transport from the client to the recursor
This feature would allow clients to ask the recursor using IPv6 instead of IPv4 as transport media.
* IPv6 transport from the recursor to any server
pdns_recursor should ask foreign nameservers using IPv6 transport as well. Due to possible performance issues (you need to ask AAAA and A for any specified nameserver, thus possibly doubling time) it should probably be made configurable to be switched off on IPv4-only servers.
