IPv4 and IPv6 Support

Kraken now supports both Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) and Version 6 (IPv6), as well as dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 networks. You will be able to access the Web Interface via the IPv4 and/or IPv6 addresses assigned to the device. This applies to all Kraken instance types including Server, Small Form Factor, Virtual Machine, and Cloud instances.

Kraken IPv4-IPv6 capabilities include the following: 

  • Static and dynamic assignment of IPv6 addresses via DHCPv6 or Stateless Autoconfiguration (SLAAC) to Kraken in addition to the existing IPv4 capabilities.
  • Dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 may be used simultaneously for management and video streaming purposes.
  • All administration functions may be performed from an IPv4 or IPv6 network client, including upgrade/downgrade, preset import/export, license install, system snapshots and specifying audit servers.
  • User functions include creating and starting streams from an IPv4 or IPv6 device.
