We're looking at disabling IPv4 on our VPN tunnels, but NCrunch doesn't appear to want to connect over IPv6. Looking at Resource Monitor the Grid Nodes appear to be listening on v6 addresses, but the client in Visual Studio won't accept IPv6 addresses in the config, or resolve them if the DNS entries only have DNS records. Are there plans to fix this?

Hi, thanks for sharing this issue.

The network code in place was originally built on components that do support IPv6, although it's been a long time since we tested it. It wouldn't surprise me if there is a hole in our compatibility somewhere. I'm marked this for investigation.

Do you have the option to work around this issue using a hostname or DNS alias?

For now we're OK to continue with IPv4, but I wanted to bring it to your attention. The main reason we noticed it is that we run a split-tunnel VPN, with DNS queries carried out by the user's ISP. In this instance our user's ISP (in what I assume is an effort to increase security) doesn't resolve addresses to private IP addresses, so we either need to update their host file, hardocde IPv4 addresses or use IPv6. We've gone with the 1st option for now.
