Appendix B IPv6 Support on Tectia Server and client tools for IBM z/OS

Tectia Server and client tools for IBM z/OS version 6.3 and later support IPv6. The products should function correctly in properly configured:

  • IPv4-only networks

  • IPv6-only networks

  • Mixed IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

This has impact on several areas where hosts or addresses may be defined.

The purpose of this appendix is to provide an overview of the configuration of Tectia Server and client tools for IBM z/OS to use IPv6. We first discuss the server (in Server Configuration and Use), then the two areas relevant to client operations, the Connection Broker (in Connection Broker) and the client itself (in Client). Finally, some examples of tunneling involving IPv6 are discussed (in Tunneling).
