Hi everyone

I am currently deploying MS SQL Server 2008R2, which is running on an
IPv6-only system.
This seems to work OK (i.e. server can be managed and SQL server can be used).
We are mostly a Linux shop, and thus have set-up our monitoring with
Nagios on Ubuntu.
I would like to use this Nagios plugin:


That is written in Perl, using DBI, which uses DBD::Sybase, which in
turn uses FreeTDS, which does not (yet) support IPv6.

Would it be possible to add support for IPv6?

Many thanks!
