In the course of preparing for the activation of Shibboleth for IPv6 services, it may be necessary to make a configuration adjustment to the service providers that communicate with our identity provider. Without this adjustment, problems in communication between the affected service provider and the identity provider may occur after the changeover on September 30, 2020.

To prevent these problems, the parameter "checkAddress" in the configuration file "shibboleth2.xml" must be set to "false". This change can already be done now, but requires a restart of the service provider (shibd) for activation.

A detailed documentation of the necessary configuration instructions can be found in our documentation portal: https://doc.itc.rwth-aachen.de/x/RIA-Aw
