Description Vladimir Benes 2010-09-15 07:10:47 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #591929 +++

Now that IPv6 is fully supported by NM (many thanks!), it would be nice if the IPv6 connection information (IP addresses, DNS servers, and so on) would be displayed in the connection information GUI box.  Currently, only IPv4 information is displayed here (in addition to some layer-2 information).

Of course, this is not a priority issue.  Consider it the icing on the NM-IPv6 cake.  ;-)

Jirka, mind looking into this?  Should be pretty simple...

show IPv6 info in nm-applet's connection info

Yeah, that's not a problem. The patch adds the IPv6 stuff and inserts group labels.

Nevertheless, we could want to adjust the dialog later to include some more stuff (like DNS domains, multiple IP addresses, etc.). But the windows tends to get too long, so we may need another layout?
