    Full IPv6 support is a massive undertaking for us, and would put a lot of our feature development on hold for months to implement. We're not blind to the need, and it will happen eventually. Just can't give a timeline right now, sorry.

    That of course is a complete garbage answer, and you know it.

    Agreed.  I have taken out the garbage.  I had overseen IPv6-only.  Thanks for pointing out.  My solution works for dual-stack.

    I guess it's cheaper to hire you than to actually implement an IPv6 solution.

    "to hire you"

    You find me confused.  It's a mystery what could be meant by this...
    What has my salary or pension to do with a solution implementation by OpenDNS?  Who would hire me, for what purpose?  I'm not paid by OpenDNS.

    So it's mid-2018 and OpenDNS STILL doesn't have IPv6 feature parity, or even basic filtering via IPv6.  I will NOT disable IPv6 on my network, nor will I encourage anyone else to do so.  Clearly IPv6 support isn't a priority for OpenDNS, as evidenced in this thread and in my discussions with OpenDNS reps.  This is why my work dropped IPv6 a couple years ago, and it's why I'm dropping OpenDNS service today. They have not listened to their customers, even after YEARS watching the rest of the world use IPv6.  It's a pity, and hopefully they will get their act together. Meanwhile, it's goodbye.

    Sorry to hear that wcoile! We're actually actively adding IPv6 support to the product now. We have it available for beta testers and expect to make it generally available soon.

    Any chance we could get a status update on the progress of the beta rollout?

    +1 for ipv6 support.

    If you added your +1 also on the top, then it’s fine, else it doesn’t count.
