[tahoe-dev] does Tahoe support IPv6 fully?

I was just about the post the exactly same question right now. Because
since a few weeks I have IPv6 running at home. Ok, it is only a tunnel
over he.net but it seems to be reliable and does not need any NAT
anymore (and thus no port forwarding and stuff like that).

Thank you for the information Zooko. I'm really looking forward to full
IPv6 support in Tahoe and also native IPv6 from my provider (which was
announced for 2013 but I only believe it when I see it).

best regards
