Support for IPv6
BMC Remedy AR System supports IPv6 for only version 8.1 and later releases.
BMC Remedy Action Request System supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) network addresses. You can deploy BMC Remedy AR System servers in an IPv6 configured network and make them accessible to clients on IPv4, IPv6, or both IPv4 and IPv6 (dual stack) configured hosts.

To comply with a United States of America federal mandate, the software products of government vendors must support operation on IPv6 networks.
