IPv6 Applications for MacOSX

MacOSX Leopard (10.5) has the largest set of IPv6-enabled apps. Besides Safari, the following all work with IPv6 servers:

  • Mail (Mail.app) supports SMTP over IPv6. I’m not sure about POP3/IMAP4.
  • The built-in Apache HTTP server can listen on IPv6 interfaces
  • The BIND9 DNS server supports queries via IPv6 interfaces, but you must add a listen-on-v6 {any;}; line to your named.conf file.
  • PHP and Perl both have IPv6 modules and libraries

If anyone can verify a third-party app that supports IPv6, let me know and I’ll update the list. So far the only one I’m aware of is Intermapper (http://www.intermapper.com).
