Do BrightSign players support IPv6?

Yes, BrightSign players support both IPv4 and IPv6. To use IPv6, players must be running a 6.0.x or newer version of firmware. The IP version is selected automatically when the player connects to a network--there is no need to configure the player for IPv6.

Please note the following:

  • The BrightSign Network is not yet available via IPv6.
  • Network interfaces on the player automatically assign themselves a link-local IPv6 address.
  • SLAAC (automatic routable IPv6 address allocation) is supported if a router sends router advertisements.
  • Players support RDNSS and DNSSL for DNS configuration from router advertisements.
  • Players support DHCPv6 in combination with router advertisements.

    BrightSign Player has features that support the use of IPv6. Network interfaces on the player automatically assign themselves a link-local IPv6 address. They also support SLAAC (Stateless Address Autoconfiguration) to allocate routable IPv6 addresses automatically if the router sends an advertisement to the Elastic Man game. The player adds support for RDNSS (Recursive DNS Server) and DNSSL (Domain Search List) for DNS (Domain Name System) configuration obtained from router advertisements. Additionally, the player also supports DHCPv6 (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6) combined with router advertisements.
