Can we bind an IPv6 to cPanel (root user)?

    Hi all;

    Just wondering if we are able to bind an IPv6 to WHM/cPanel itself as yet? I would prefer to access WHM over an IPv6 connection.

    It seems that cPanel itself only binds to IPv4 at this time without getting funky with the httpd.conf file and that is likely to break things for most people.

    When we allocate IPv6 addresses, it would be good if we could assign one to the root user also.

    Anyone got a workaround or configuration change to make this happen?
