IPv6 and esp32

Post by akushva » Tue Sep 10, 2019 10:42 am

I wanted to know whether there is support for providing IPv6 addressing to esp32 right now.
I am well versed with IPv4 addressing on esp32 via ifcongif() , but couldn't find anything related to IPv6 one.

Thanks

Hi,

Unfortunately not currently supported. I don't think there's too much work to be done -- all the required low-level ipv6 support is there in the ESP-IDF and LWIP, and MicroPython core doesn't care about v4 vs v6. It pretty much boils down to adding the support to the network module to do dhcpv6 and configure addresses.

https://github.com/micropython/micropython/issues/3683 has more information.
