I'm not convinced. What you mention is real, but the code they need is
little more than a regular expression that can be found on Google and a
20-line script for testing lames. And a couple of weeks of testing, and
I think I'm exaggerating.

If they don't want to offer support for it, they can just put up some
disclaimer.

regards,

Carlos

It requires touching code, (hopefully) testing that code, deploying it, training customer support staff to answer questions, updating documentation, etc. Presumably Netsol did the cost/benefit analysis and decided the potential increase in revenue generated by the vast hordes of people demanding IPv6 (or the potential lost in revenue as the vast hordes transfer away) didn't justify the expense. Simple business decision.
