Some years ago I posted a request to make Boinc/lhc@home IPv6 compatible (for Microsoft Windows).
The reason was that IPv4 addresses would be scarce in some years.

Now the number of IPv4 addresses available for new assignments has decreased to less than 10% (see Arin, Ripe, etc). The forecast is that in 2 years all IPv4 addresses will be assigned. Additional Internet addresses will be IPv6.

The newer Microsoft OSes are IPv6 enabled and operate fine in my environment.
Many applications are IPv6 compliant too.

So I repeat my question: When will we make Boinc/lhc@home IPv6 compliant?

Best to post your question on the BOINC forums here.

There must be some sort of IPv6 evangelism drive that I\'m not aware of, I noticed on on MW as well :)
