it seems Geolocation is not working at the moment for IPv6 addreses. I tried the PHP and PECL backends and none could locate IPv6 addresses. Also I tried to look trough older issues regarding this but I'm confused about the current status. Is this supposed to work?
Yes, I have a lot of IPv6 locations that just show up as unkown. When I look at the source I don't think that the GeoLiteCityv6.dat is even loaded.

Do all IPv6 show as unknown, or only "a lot" of them? if some are being geo located then it's working from the Piwik side, and likely the IPv6 not geo located are because the geo location database is still not precise for ipv6 addresses. Could you send some example IPv6 not geo located and some that are?
No, just "a lot" of them. My work IP address shows up unknown, take 2001:780:53d2::1 for example. Some addresses that are successfully geo-located are for Deutsche Telekom addresses.
@sebastianw Could you paste a few examples of IPv6 addresses that don't geo locate?
and a few examples that do geolocate OK?
but is that coming from the ipv6 file or is it somehow using the IPv4 file for that? because I didn't see any attempt to access the ipv6 database
Hello, any news for IPv6 support ?
Hi @Angristan - no news yet, and we likely won't be working on this feature for a while. We would welcome a pull request for this nice feature!
http://www.tcpiputils.com/browse/ipv6-address/2001:9d0:10::1 shows correct IP address 2001:9d0:10::1
Location Austria (AT) flag ASN number 8387
ASN name (ISP) T-Systems Austria GesmbH
We need help to make this one work. Pull request very welcome
I still struggle how to help implement it. I have a intranet list of ranges and the maxmind dbs. I think in v3.x i need to create a locationprovider. Any more hints where i need to hook , change db schema?, .. docs.
And how to debug the new parts and not complete piwik flows
update: we are planning to implement the new Geoip2 support soon, which should also bring support for Ipv6 geo-location.
Note: GeoIP2 will fully support IPv6 geolocating.
But we won't fix geolocation IPv6 addresses with GeoIP Legacy (PECL)
