Hi, Mike,

Yeah, the cxgb3i does have the limitation of offloading ipv4 only. Would
it be possible to have separate param for ipv4 and ipv6?

Right now iscsi_tcp supports ipv4 and ipv6 for that param. I think 
people have been saying it might be easier to break it up into a ipv4 
and ipv6 param.

Karen, it seems like you are only supporting ipv4 right now. Any

Jay, it seems be2iscsi handling is incorrect. Is your driver supporting 
ipv6 right now?
