Hello,

first of, thank you very much for importing the new ioquake engine into OpenArena and having IPv6 enabled (I did not follow the development closely, but I read a few threads in the development forum which said it might get disabled).

It took me a while to figure out what exact settings you needed (+set net_enabled 7), but it seems to work fine now. The only thing is although I tried making my server visible on the masterserver with IPv6, I failed to do so. I read a thread on the ioquake3 mailinglist that IPv6 masterserver support is actually a moving target, so I guess it's won't work at the moment and I don't need to keep trying, right? So at the moment you need to specify the server address manually?

Anyway, I'm not an experienced server operator (I basically used the first server.cfg I found and it might just break in an hour), but if you want to run your OpenArena 0.8.0 against an IPv6-only server on a native connection, run

$ openarena +set net_enabled 7 +connect lxbsc01.ipv6.lrz-muenchen.de:27960

and give it a try.

Thanks again, waiting for the masterserver :-)

Good timing !  Smiley  I'm currently finishing the code for the next release of dpmaster (2.0), which will support IPv6. It's functional in the current development version. I also sent the necessary patches to the IOQ3 team to add support for IPv6-capable master server queries, and they have been commited to its code repository. So chances are IPv6 will be fully functional, with master server support, with the next releases of ioq3 and dpmaster.

If you really want to beta test all that stuff, let me know.

Woken up? Nobody ever asked me for IPv6 support in dpmaster actually.   Tongue  Honestly, I thought I was the only one to care about it until I saw IPv6 patches being committed to IOQ3 code base a few months ago.  Cheesy

And yeah, I don't know if I'm "the dpmaster guy", but I'm definitely the one who writes its code.  Wink

There is now a test OpenArena master server running, with both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity support.
- IPv6 clients see both IPv4 and IPv6 servers.
- IPv4 clients see IPv4 servers only.

The address is dpmaster.version6.ru.
It will be turned off if/when dpmaster.deathmask.net adds IPv6 support.

To try it out, set
Code:
\sv_master2 "dpmaster.version6.ru"
in the console, then go to the Multiplayer menu, select "Servers: Internet (2)" at the top of the screen and click "Refresh" at the bottom.

If you run an IPv6-capable OpenArena dedicated server, you can use this master server in addition to dpmaster.deathmask.net, in this case add to your server config:
Code:
sv_master2 "dpmaster.version6.ru"
and your server will register on both dpmasters automatically.

For testing purposes there are also available:
- dpmaster6.version6.ru - IPv6-only hostname;
- dpmaster4.version6.ru - IPv4-only hostname.

I have added a redirect so that dpmaster.version6.ru loaded over HTTP points to my informational page about it, http://version6.ru/en/oa
The server will be up and running for the foreseeable future, and there are now about 5-7 IPv6-capable game servers registering on it.
