I have given some more support for the IPV6 at user space and kernel space 
level,that will inturn contains sending ipv6 info to the kernel and there it 
will distinguish between IPV4/6 and then get connect.

In case if you need the patch, i will send that across to you.

Comment 8 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-03-10 01:12:40 UTC
This bugzilla had previously been approved for engineering
consideration but Red Hat Product Management is currently reevaluating
this issue for inclusion in RHEL4.6.

Comment 11 Andrius Benokraitis 2007-08-23 17:31:11 UTC
This has been deferred to RHEL 4.7 due to resource constraints and the stated
medium severity.

Comment 13 Andrius Benokraitis 2008-05-06 14:13:49 UTC
This has been deferred to RHEL 4.8 due to just receiving hardware and firmware
to test this.

Comment 15 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-08-26 12:40:12 UTC
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request.  You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
