Will OW support IPv6 sometime in the future?

It will most likely be added at some point. Does anyone have an IPv6 IP Address in the community?

I do but since no one has IPv6-only address, it's not a priority.

Original War should support IPv6.
It is only a matter of time before it entirely replaces IPv4.
Local networks already uses (can use) IPv6.

IPv6 brings especially massive extension of address space and improvement of ability to relay data with high speed.

Overall IPv6 is conservative expansion of IPv4.
Most of transmission and application layers requires small or no changes to work with IPv6.
Exceptions are protocols of applications including addresses of network layer (for example FTP or NTP v3).
However applications usually require small changes and new compilation to work with IPv6.

Protocol IPv4 has limited size of packet to 64 KiB.
In contrast, IPv6, if used in communication of hosts and communication routes allowing MTU (maximal size of transport unit) greater than 65576 octet (65536 + 40 for header), disposes of optional support for packets over this limit.
Their size can scale up to 4 GiB.
Use of jumbograms can decrease directing and that way increase throughput of transmission route.

Radzio would have to be the one to implement that as i don't have any experience with IPv6.

I will add it to http://bugs.owsupport.com/

MTU has nothing to do with IPv6. If you run it over Ethernet you usually get MTU of 1500 to avoid losing big amounts of data (or the need to retransmit it).

IPv4 will probably be the backbone of the Internet for years to come.

The problem with OW is that I doubt Delphi 6 has ever heard of IPv6 (6 does not really help).
