Enable IPv6 connections


When this option is active the monitoring agent will try to run its test over IPv6 whenever possible.


Due to the fact that IPv6 is still not widely in use, some of the WebSitePulse monitoring locations still do not support it. If you choose to enable IPv6 the monitoring locations list will be limited to only those that have IPv6 connectivity. In case you are changing an existing target please verify if the previously configured monitoring locations support IPv6.


On hosts that return both IPv6 and IPv4 addresses, the monitoring agent will first try the IPv6 ones and if unable to connect will fall back to the IPv4 addresses. To monitor only IPv6 connectivity use the IPv6 address in the host configuration or use an IPv6 only domain.
