Request to use the Dropbox desktop app with pure ipv6 addressing.

Request to use the Dropbox desktop app with pure ipv6 addressing.

Helpful | Level 5

I'd like to inquire about the status as well, though it seems it got better?

If I run Dropbox (v70.4.93) with IPv6-only (IPv4 completely disabled!) the client will connect briefly, see that everything is in sync, and then change to grey icon mourning about missing connectivity.

If I enable IPv4 on the interface, but don't provide a valid route (i.e. no IPv4 connections are possible) Dropbox seems to run okay and stay connected, except for some intermittent disconnects.

Please note: I don't have or run any NAT64. This is pure IPv6-only.

Seems like it's only a minor glitch.

No news here?!

Hey @tiljes, thanks for the nudge!
 
Re-phrasing from Ross’s post, the Dropbox desktop app should connect normally on a network that’s operating with IPv6 addressing as long as this is routed through a working DNS64/NAT64 gateway. Are you facing any issues with that by any chance? 
 
Please let me know in your next message & we’ll go from there!

As I mentioned, I don't have NAT64 and I am asking for pure IPv6-support without the need of NAT64.

Now I see @tiljes, thanks for re-iterating! 
 
I was cross-checking whether your description back in April still applies; thanks for confirming.
