When setting up a New Trap Rule (Edit Forward Trap Action), the error message "hostname cannot be resolved to an IP Address" is displayed if a hostname only resolvable to an IPv6 address is specified.


Although the popup window asks for either the hostname or IP address, you need to enter the IP address in the case of an IPv6 address.


Use the IPv6 address instead of the hostname.
