canon_logoLast week we bought a brand new canon MX850.

As usual i was clicking around in the configuration menu, when i found that it was possible to enable IPv6 support, witch made me really happy.

Today i started playing with the IPv6 support. It turns out, they forgot to add dual stack support! it is only possible to enable IPv6 OR IPv4, not both at the same time.

I figured, maybe there is a firmware update available on the canon website, turns out there is only an older release 1.03, it came pre installed with the 1.06 firmware.

It seems to be a feature, according to the manual: “The machine is not detected after the network settings are changed” Answer: “The IP version may be set to IPv6. If the ip version of the machine is set to IPv6, change it to IPv4. …”.

To bad, back to the old IPv4 again…
