Re: [ldm-users] LDM & IPv6

I understand the backwards compatibility concern, but when I bellow about
IPv6, I'm just suggesting we add it in to LDM in addition to IPv4 to make
it dual stack.

That means two peers could use one or both.  That would solve the backward
compatibility problem.  IPv6 would just be added as an ability, not a

Sorry if I wasn't clear on that.  I'd just like to see both in there so all
of us can use one, the other, or both.  IPv6 is perfectly suited for
data-heavy feeds like NEXRAD2 because of its packet design.  :)
