Why is IPv6 disabled by default in IPFire?

Why is IPv6 disabled by default in IPFire. can someone explain to me.

Hallo @tradelabelsoftware

Welcome to the IPFire community.

The base code for IPFire2.x was put together more than two decades ago, long before anyone was thinking of IPv6 so the code in it is set up to only handle IPv4.

To change it to also handle IPv6 would require a complete re-write of the code base. Rather than doing that IPFire3.x is being developed where the code base is being developed from scratch and will handle IPv6 and also the ability to have more network interfaces and taking advantage of newer approaches to things.
