IPv6 in System.DirectoryServices? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have not had any success in connecting to my ipv6 ldap server. I get an exception of type COMException saying "The server is not operational.", but no ip packets are sent from my application. I have verified that it works with ipv4.
    Code;
    DirectoryEntry directoryEntry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" + path + "/RootDSE",userName,password,AuthenticationTypes.ServerBind)

    Where path is the servers ipv6 address (I've tried with and without square brackets).

    Is ipv6 not supported in System.DirectoryServices? Or am I missing something here?

    Regards,

  • Most probably the server is not enabled for v6.
