Is it possible to setup samba to work over IPv6?

Apparently CIFS does run over IPv6.

I’ve never tried it. Let us know how you go.

Ansus;

In addition to the link by ken yap, also see:
http://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-3.2.0.html
and
http://news.samba.org/announcements/3.2_press_release/

Versions after 3.2.0 have support for IPv6.
