IPv6 on the PC port
Even if your phone is using an IPv4 address, you can connect a IPv6 host on the PC port. The phone acts only as a switch from PC to NET port. This means that if the host sends IPv6 packets to the phone on the PC port, the packets are sent further through the NET port of the phone, with no change to the IP headers.
IPv6 on snom m9
The snom m9 natively supports IPv6 for SIP. Please see the configuration and usage details here
