    Default IPv6 and Payments Pro

    Hi,
    I have an IPv6 enabled website and I am beta testing v1.50rc2. I am attempting to setup Website Payment Pro which I am not using on my production site. I have things setup the way I think they should be to use Paypal Sandbox. I have been getting the following error when trying to complete payment.

    Zen Cart message: 10747 [] Invalid Data - This transaction cannot be processed.

    This Paypal error translates to "The merchant entered an IP address that was in an invalid format. The IP address must be in a format such as 123.456.123.456."

    Looking at the debug logs from the Paypal module the IP address that is sent is as follows: [IPADDRESS] => 200147016321835143 which corresponds to my client IPv6 address (in decimal format maybe) Any way we can force Zencart to send the IPv4 address without disabling IPv6 all together. I realize the client PC isn`t connecting via IPv4 so Zencart is probably not aware of an IPv4 address. Also, that IP Address isn`t in correct IPv6 format, is that something that needs to be corrected in the Zencart module╔

    Or do I just have to bite the bullett and turn off IPv6.

    Thanks!

    As you're no doubt aware, IPv6 isn't widely embraced yet, including by the big players such as PayPal.

    You'll need to turn off IPv6 until such time as it's embraced significantly enough that it's useful.

    Meanwhile, feel free to lobby your request directly to PayPal.

    Ok, I figured as much. Paypal making life difficult again. In the meantime, is there something that needs to be adjusted in the ZC module to make the IPv6 address appear in it`s correct HEX form╔ For future support╔

    Thanks for quick reply!

    The required changes will be made at such time as IPv6 is incorporated into the core functionality at a future date.
