    Does Wordfence have IPv6 issues? I receive this when I navigate to the main options page of Wordfence:

    Wordfence can't get the IP of clients and therefore can't operate. We received IP: xxxx:xxx:xxx:. X-Forwarded-For was: REMOTE_ADDR was: xxxx:xxx:xxx::42

    Hi,

    Wordfence does not support IPv6 right now which is what I think you're using, although you haven't posted the whole address the colons lead me to believe those are IPv6 addresses.

    Regards,

    Mark.

    Yes, I am using IPv6. I did not post the real address as my IPv6 addresses are static. ;-)

    Do you have any idea when IPv6 support will be there? Seems not to be the most emminent thing, but would be nice to have. IPv6 is getting more and more important.

    We'll be adding it in the coming months I expect.
