    Does anyone know if this will support IPv6 or if anyone is working on adding IPv6 support?

    I am working on IPv6 support in a fork of bandwidthd at http://sourceforge.net/p/bandwidthdipv6.  It is going to be a little while before it is ready for production use.

    Okay, I have IPv6 support working, at least it can watch my own link-local traffic. I don't currently have an IPv6 network on which to actually test it. I only have it in svn at the moment, https://svn.code.sf.net/p/bandwidthdipv6/svn/trunk/bandwidthd
    After autoheader and autoconf, run ./configure --enable-ipv6 --enable-linked-ipdata --enable-python --enable-pgsql

    Note that I currently don't have it working with IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time, so if you need that you'll need to copies of the source in different spots. It also should work without python, but I've not tried it. It can only output ipv6 addresses to python and pgsql, sorry no sqlite support and no cdf. It also should work without the linked IpData, but is terribly slow on large networks.
