IPv6 Toolkit v1.5.3 Released

A security assessment and troubleshooting tool for the IPv6 protocols.

Changelog v1.5.3

  • All: Fix packet size issues. Many tools were using a (sometimes non-initialized) max_packet_size variable, instead of the corresponding member of the idata structure.
  • All: Add support for some Mac OS version. The toolkit would not compile on Lion (10.7.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6.8), as a result of inconsistencies of how BYTE_ORDER-related constants were (not) set in those versions of Mac OS.


Supported platforms

  • The following platforms are supported: FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Linux, and Mac OS.
