This page shows the current status of IPv6 support of the most important networking applications for Linux and *BSD. We started from the Peter Bieringer's work on his famous IPv6 Status Page and tried to extend the information provided in it.

Nowadays, the number of applications with native IPv6 support is indeed significant, as most important networking applications provide native IPv6 support and there are also many developers working on unofficial patches for pretty much anything else.

It looks like the main factor that limits the spread of IPv6 is currently shifting from a lack of applications to a general lack of interest among connectivity providers. At the moment of this writing only a few ISPs offer native IPv6 Internet access to their customers.

Things are changing fast. We do our best in keeping this page up-to-date, but we need your help for this task, so please send us a report if you find inaccuracies or obsolete information in this page, or if you simply wish us to add a new application here.
