[0.15.40] No IPv6 on auth web servers

Post by JulienCC » Wed Mar 07, 2018 4:13 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to run a headless server on an IPv6 only machine.
The server stops because of :
0.528 Info HttpSharedState.cpp:44: Downloading https://auth.factorio.com/generate-server-padlock-2
0.654 code:7, 7; Couldn't connect to server
It seems that auth.factorio.com doesn't provide any AAAA record.
Is it possible to add IPv6 support to the auth server ?

I could use a tunnel or a proxy but that would be great if IPv6 could work out of the box.

PS : I'm not looking for workarounds, just reporting my situation.

Unfortunately no, at least for now. The authentication server runs on Heroku, which doesn't support IPv6 for some reason. But I am in the middle of moving some parts of our infrastructure to different providers, so I could do that also for the auth server, in the future. No promises.

Thanks for the reply, at least I know you are aware of the situation.

Heroku uses AWS, probably they always did. But AWS started to provide IPv6 quite recently, especially on certain of their products.
That could be a reason. I'll ask them.

I asked for a roadmap or anything, here is the answer :

We don't currently have any plans to support IPv6, to keep up to date with product announcements and new features, please subscribe to our Blog and Changelog

Best,

There's nothing more I can do on my side.

Fortunately, the auth server is a fairly easy service, so it won't be too difficult to migrate.

Sorry for necroing this thread but is there any update to this?
The headless server supports IPv6 since 0.12 but the auth.factorio.com gateway doesn't, is adding full IPv6 support still on the tasklist?
