Known Issues

IPv6 problems

Versions >=v0.2.6 distinguish between public and restricted services.
Restricted services require the user's device to be connected to an internal Backspace WLAN.
Determination if the device is connected to a proper Backspace WLAN is accomplished by checking the AP's SSID and by checking the device's IP address, which must be within
The IP check is performed using bit operations assuming to work on 32bit IP addresses.
This is why at current state the App will not work if the internal Backspace WLAN serves IPv6 addresses.
