IPv6 Ip's

How do I go about increasing field length in the database that stores IP's. I need to see the entire length of IPv6 IP's.

Thanks Kevin L. Read through those threads and basically it seems vbulletin doesn't support Ipv6 and banning someone you need to using it is not really possible without rewriting a lot of code and db changes. My biggest issue is Vbulletin is banning members that have been with us for a long time and their IP changes to a Ipv6 and that makes no sense. So, basically a percentage of our members won't be able to access our site unless they go to a library or something.

What do you mean by "doesnt support IPv6" ?

It cannot store them (unless you increase the field size) but you can still access and use it.

Some common field sizes have been changed in 4.2.4 (& 3.8.10).
