      Description

      Full support for IPv6 addresses from clients would be the higher priority as we (VCL admins) can't control the addresses our clients come from, but a side-bonus would be support for managing VMs that only have v6 addresses.

      using php's Inet_pton/inet_aton (perl should have it as well) plus the varbinary() database field type should allow you to still do "end >= ?" on v6 and v4 ipaddresses - https://github.com/ampache/ampache/blob/develop/lib/class/access.class.php is an example implementation of PHP supporting IPv6
