Description

For the DDNS feature in the DHCP Server one cannot enter an IPv6 address. The error message is:

The following input errors were detected:

    A valid primary domain name server IP address must be specified for the dynamic domain name.

I cannot think of a reason why it should not be able to hand over the information via IPv6, so that's why I'm filing this feature request.

the way that field is used, it must be an IPv4 IP. 'primary' is where it's specified in dhcpd.conf, which must be IPv4. It should be able to use IPv6 there via 'primary6' instead though.

Input is accepted and the resulting config appears to be correct. No errors from DHCP.
