How to enable ipv6 in spa112 to accept setting fx line with ipv6 and asterisk 1.8 ??
Correct Answer by Dan Lukes about 3 years 1 month ago

SPA112 is declared to be IPv6 upgradeable. But no such upgrade is available as far as I know. Do you have SPA112 with IPv6 support ?

On the other side, why you are asking for something like it ? SPA112 is not suitable for deployment into public IP addresses. For private, closed, LAN you can use private IPv4 addressing scheme.

In advance, IPv6 is brand new feature for Asterisk 1.8. There are some issues on the Asterisks side. You should consider to avoid IPv6 for production deployment.

My humble opinion ? Never.

Cisco is spending insufficient resources even for patching known bugs.

Forget new features. But don't forget I'm not affiliated with Cisco in any way. I'm guessing only.

Note, I consider IPv6 to be inessential feature, personally. SPA [1235]xx devices are not stable nor secured to be exposed on public IP.

I can recommend none to you.

Connect it to known switch outside (or two, three ...) only. You may allow connections from other (known) phones with no intermediate switch as well. Use firewall or so to make it unreachable for connections from other (unknown) sources. Never expose SPA [1235]xx device to be reachable by just anyone.

It apply to untrusted devices connected in the same LAN as well!!!

Note my "Dangerous default, bill fraud may occur". SPA devices needs to be isolated from all untrusted devices, regardless they are local or external.
