Hello, This has been asked in quite a few places already but there is no clear answer as far as I can tell. Long story short, if you ISP provides you with both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, then by connecting to AirVPN VPN only the IPv4 traffic is being routed through the tunnel. If a website (or any other remote endpoint) runs on IPv6, then your real IPv6 (the one provided to you by your ISP) will be used and so you end up with an IP leak. Not good. The easiest choice is to disable IPv6 per host basis or use some iptables or other firewall magic to filter out all the IPv6 traffic. This is only a workaround and a very inconvenient one especially when you run AirVPN on a router. The best solution would be for AirVPN to provide a dual stack IPv4/IPv6 tunnel so connected clients can reach the modern IPv6 world privately and securely in a similar fashion to IPv4. Are there any plans to support this option? As far as I can see there are only a handful of VPN providers out there which actually provide dual stack VPNs so it would be nice for AirVPN join this effort.
