Make Control IPv6 ready[ 20 votes ]
1.Yes 19 / 95%
2.No 1 / 5%

Hi,

This issue has been raised many times, but apparently not enough. Kerio Control, a serious and well made firewall for SMB, is not IPv6 ready.

This is increasingly becoming a problem as more and more business are implementing IPv6 in their networks.

For those of you unaware with the pending issues I ask you to take a quick glance at. http://www.ipv6actnow.org/ and for instance one of the latest news articles indicating that the remaining IPv4 addresses have no dropped blow the 5%. At it's current rate all IPv4 addresses will have been assigned in 228 days time.

Now this may lead you to think that the ISP's have reserves and to a point this is the case. But don't let these thoughts fool you to think that this is a problem for lets say, next year or the year after.

No, increasing amounts of business ISP's and even consumer IP's are enabling their customers to use IPv6.

This is the point where the customer turns to you! You are the guy who has this cool firewall called Kerio Control.
And currently you, just like me, are forced say. "I'm sorry really don't have any way to firewall and 'CONTROL' this traffic, I have no solution." and you'll lose your customer.

This is not fiction, this happens, regularly!

With friendly regards,
Memnon
(a Kerio fan)

Note that I've read and understood the feature request policy of this forum. There is however no uservoice or suggest idea section for Control, as there is for Connect.

So I'd like to I consider this post of a broader discussion about one of the core abilities of any firewall. Being able sort IP traffic (IPv4 & IPv6).

Next that technical aspect there are now also commercial aspects that start to weigh in. Users & system integrators should be able to express their concerns regarding this in a public discussion.

So I'd be grateful if this thread wasn't moderated away.

Yup. Don't need IPv6 yet, but I will in a year or two. I would like to have IPv6 in Kerio long before that, so it is good a matured once I start depending on it Smile

Could someone from Kerio go on-the-record on this subject ? I'd love to hear your point of view.

I agree also with IPv6 support on all products.
And i agree with Kris from Kerio NL to request also IPSec support to make VPN connection to other firewall branches.
And make this work beter then Cisco/Juniper or Cisco/Watchguard Wink

We have now only 26 days left before IPv4 is running out.

Still no reaction of Kerio ....

So, for all of you who need an IPv6 firewall, look at www.getipv6.info/index.php/IPv6_Firewalls

Kerio Control is a fantastic firewall, but without IPv6 it will be obsolete within a year.

This thread: 2010 - stil not answered

So, I am afraid all Kerio users (including myself and my customers) must find another firewall, because Kerio is not responding to any IPv6 request. I am beginning to think that Kerio does not have the ability /knowledge to support IPv6.

And for kerio: the IPv6 problem is NOT going away by ignoring it as you did for the last 6 years.

Please respond on the messages below.
In the Netherlands ISP are already deploy IP V6 to the customers.
If Kerio isn't responding fast enough we are losing customers.
Nice to have a Box, but if Control isn't supporting IP v6 it's a total wast.

The first new release of control must be with IP v6 support.
Otherwise it's going the wrong way.

Kerio, where are we with IPv6? Nice you got new PBX software up and running but IPv6 is now almost a basic need (like IPSec...).

Any way is going in wrong way... Http inspector not working good, i noticed problems with pop3 and smtp inspector to...
http inspector add 200ms to http ping (toooo much)
Web administration is not good for admins.
Http cache on transparent proxy is strange thing.
QoS for specific ports are not supported...
winroute and IDS are opened in same process what means if you have 2 cores only one is using by bout process.
VPN is not working go to (only connect to server but is not connecting with other users, from internet)
Not possible to disable in IDS checking specific port (because causing lag)
IDS using CPU to much if is many connections opened, ram going up all time.

Ipv6 will not supported ages and when it will be, will be buggy...
Expensive, but they didn't fix base things.

Regards

Question cannot be stupid, but some of the answers can.
