Kamailio/OpenSER handles IPv6 properly, but Asterisk currently does not
have any support for IPv6. There has been some work by March Blanchet
from ViaGenie, but it is not up to date and not integrated into the  
version of Asterisk.

Something that bothers me is the lack of configurations for "IPv6  
default gateways"
in all IPv4 based products. Even though Asterisk is only IPv4, we  
might still get
IPv6 addresses in many cases - SRV records, Contact headers and REFER  
In order to handle these - or the reverse case "IPv4 default gateway"  
- we need
configuration options and logic for it.

Yes, this is an important issue. So far, it seems like no one wants to  
put any money
towards it so we can fix Asterisk. Open Source projects are in hand of  
the user base
and their requirements.
