not really sure OpenAI API endpoint will obtain an IPv6 address as soon as possible.

Is there a solution now ? I tried to add my discord bot on an IPV6 only VPS, but I’m getting errors because the API is using IPV4 only.

Not sure why not, according to the IP space reported by their DNS entries for api(dot)openai(dot)com, they are using cloudflare in the front of their systems. According to cloudflare all they would need to do to support this would be to “flip” this “switch”.


This seems like a deliberate choice.
