+<h3 style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">IPv6 Support<br>
+</h3>
+<p style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">IPv6 is short for "Internet
+Protocol
+Version 6". IPv6 is the "next generation" protocol designed by the IETF
+to replace the current version Internet Protocol, IP Version 4
+("IPv4"). IPv6 Support for OpenPegasus is documented in <a
+ href="http://www.openpegasus.org/pp/uploads/40/14222/PEP_291_IPv6.html">PEP
+291</a>.<br>
+</p>
+<p style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">The IPv6 support in OpenPegasus is
+controlled by the PEGASUS_ENABLE_IPV6 build variable. Setting this to
+'true' before building OpenPegasus will enable the IPv6 support. In
+2.6.1 this variable will default to 'false' to omit the IPv6 support.<br>
+</p>
+<p style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">The following subsections provide
+some information on IPv6 support for the Linux and Windows platforms.
+Note that in the 2.6.1 release there is no automatic run-time detection
+of IPv6 support on a platform by OpenPegasus. If you build with
+PEGASUS_ENABLE_IPV6=true, your platform must support IPv6 or you will
+get a build failure (missing header files), a run-time bind() failure,
+or possibly some other failure. This applies to both the CIM Server and
+Listener components. For more information on IPv6 support for your
+specific platform, refer to the documentation for that platform.<br>
+</p>
+<p style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">All OpenPegasus externals that
+support either a hostname or an IP address as input have been updated
+to allow an IPv6 address to be specified. If the required input is just
+an IP address (eg. no optional or required port number), then the IPv6
+address must be specified without brackets. For example, the
+OpenPegasus osinfo client (which returns information about the OS
+running on a host system) takes separate host and port options. In this
+case a host with an IPv6-configured network interface would be
+specified as:<br>
+</p>
+<div style="margin-left: 40px; color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">osinfo -h
+3ffe:1:2:1 -p 5988<br>
+</div>
+<p style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">But the cimcli command, which
+takes
+an optional "location" option including an optional port number,
+requires the IPv6 address to be delimited with brackets, for example:<br>
+</p>
+<div style="margin-left: 40px; color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">cimcli ns -l
+[3ffe:1:2:1]</div>
+<p style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">or<br>
+</p>
+<div style="margin-left: 40px; color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">cimcli ns -l
+[3ffe:1:2:1]:5989<br>

+<br style="color: rgb(153, 51, 153);">

<p>It is a major goal
of the OpenPegasus project to both drive and utilize the DMTF CIM/WBEM
specifications.&nbsp; However, today there are a number of known
differences.&nbsp;
As of this release, some of the differences include the following:</p>
-

through a set of Pegasus Provider registration classes rather than
support the DMTF defined Provider Qualifier. Pegasus will not support
this qualifier in the future. See the readme for more information on
-provider registration.&nbsp; This is not a deviation from the specifications but
- is a different method of registration than many CIM Servers and means that the
- the provider qualifier is unused in Pegasus.</li>
