IPv6 support


(Rik Ribbers) #1

Hello,

Will elasticsearch support ipv6 addresses as an IP type. Especially native support for searching different presentations.

e.g. The following addresses are all the same ip addresses with different presentations

2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334
2001:0db8:85a3:0:0:8a2e:0370:7334
2001:0db8:85a3::8a2e:0370:7334
2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7334

Thank Mark for pointing me in the correct direction.

As far as I can see the problem is that Lucene does not support ipv6 yet but they are working on it.
