When will Core support IPV6?

I have Nest Protect products that require IPV6 to connect.  Nest support says that Norton Core does not support IPV6.  Will this change?

Re: When will Core support IPV6?

Hello Jay. The statement Core does NOT support IPv6 at the present time is true. The official statement is here. The reasoning is that IPv6 isn't a "standardized" internet protocol on the part of Norton thinking at the time Core was released. I will reach out to the Core team for some information as to when/if IPv6 support will be included in a near term firmware update for Core.

Thanks SA!!  At the moment, my six Nest Protect devices can only connect to routers and gateways that support IPV6 because they need to be networked together.  All my other devices connect well to the Core.

You're welcome. The Core dev team is aware of the customer need for IPv6, they haven't responded to my contact as of this post. Hoping to have an answer whether it will be included in a near term firmware update.

Re: When will Core support IPV6?

Just a follow-up. The Core team has been messaged, I don't have any feedback yet to report. I asked an additional question since Core is/was going through a BETA, IPv6 support could have been a part of it but I wasn't privy to the BETA so personally I have no clue. My question was, would the next gen Core support a "dual-stack" ability where IPv6 would co-exist alongside the current IPv4.

Re: When will Core support IPV6?

Morning Jay. The response from the team is, IPV6 is not going to be implemented in the near term. It IS however going to implemented. No time frame given of course, as always. I mean even a dual stack scenario would suffice until such time as IPV6 fully replaces IPV4, yet remain backwards compatible. Time will tell. Hope this appropriately answers the thread for you.

Re: When will Core support IPV6?

Hello

The IPv6 Team should have a look at this.

https://www.internetsociety.org/resources/2018/state-of-ipv6-deployment-2018/ Some USA companies offer only IPv6 now for free. If you want IPv4, you have to pay a monthly fee. Not having IPv6 in the near future is going to result in the loss of possible customers. 85 % of Verizon Wireless is currently IPv6 and that is just in the USA.

Have a Good Night and

Floplot. Those are mobile networks and indeed they should be deploying IPv6 across the board. Here is where Core not having IPV6 puts it in the marketplace.

Re: When will Core support IPV6?

Hi SA

I agree with you.  Not having IPV6 puts the Core at a severe disadvantage.

thanks for all you do on this forum.

Hello Soul

The Core was the only one listed on that page that didn't have IPv6 support.

Re: When will Core support IPV6?

Jay thanks for the kind words. Floplot, indeed it was #6 and the point of the post is that it's the only one of 6 NOT supporting IPV6. Although I believe the hardware just needs activating with a firmware release. The basic of the best routers now support IPV6, its sad Core still doesn't.
