would it be possible to have a gateway app for blitz programs that blitzmax connects to with ipv4 and sends commands to the app to connect and then send data through.

Something like:
Connected to and sends CONNECT with a ipv6 address.
once it's connected to the other end it works as a bridge the max program sends data to the app which sends it to the server.

Would this be viable, thoughts

Should be possible, yes...

(Iirc Brucey did say he might look at ipv6 at some point, a while back)

ah would be amazing as a inbuilt thing and the only thing which blitz needs :)

Here's what Brucey wrote a year ago, Re: IPv6: "I started work on adding support to it in NG's modules... "

Haven't heard anything since though, don't know if he's still working on it, or if he's given up.

very interesting read and one of the things that would put NG on the map. If ipv6 support was made possible one way or other it would really be a big draw and was one of the reasons I looked at other languages as I see more and more stuff requiring it.

I will however look at NG more and see what's possible using that :)
