Firewall system log displaying ipv6 addresses by default



  • Hi All,  my firewall log is dip laying ipv6 address, instead of ipv4 which is what I am use to. It does show ipv4 but the majority of entries are ipV6. I this by default with the new update?  I recently updated to 2.1.4-RELEASE (i386).  Before this i only saw ipv4 entries.

    thanks,

    It shows what is being blocked. If you have IPv6 traffic and do not allow it, then it would show as blocked.

    Older versions (2.0.x and before) didn't parse IPv6 firewall log entries properly most of the time (or at all) and thus might have hidden them.

    If you want to allow IPv6, you can enable IPv6 under System > Advanced on the Networking tab, and then add a rule to LAN to pass IPv6 traffic (or block it without logging).
