Chapter 3: Creating and Configuring Servers

IPV6 support

EAServer supports the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPV6) on platforms that provide the underlying network support such as Windows 2003, Windows XP, and Solaris 2.8. Windows 2000 does not support IPV6. IPV6 support also requires JDK 1.4, or a later JDK version.

Server support for IPV6

By default, the server supports IPV4 connections only. To start the server with support for IPV6, specify the -IPV6 and -jdk14 command line options. With these options, the server will accept both IPV4 and IPV6 connections. For more information, see “Starting the server”.

For servers that run in clusters, you must also set the server property using jagtool or the Advanced tab in the EAServer Manager Server Properties dialog box. For each server, set this property to a string that simulates an IPV4 address that is unique among the servers in the cluster; for example:


Client support for IPV6

To support IPV6, Java clients must run in a version 1.4 or later Java virtual machine. C++ clients and other clients that use the C++ runtime (such as PowerBuilder) must run with the required system network libraries in the DLL or shared library search path.

IPV6 host addresses can contain colons. To embed IPV6 host addresses in IIOP or HTTP URLs, surround the host address with square brackets as specified by RFC 2732, Format for Literal IPv6 Addresses in URLs. For example:
