It’s come to our attention that all versions of Windows prior to Windows 10
cannot handle SANs of type IPAddress. Those older versions correctly handle
IP addresses in SANs if they are of type dNSName. Jody from Microsoft has
confirmed this.

I’d like to propose a ballot to allow IP addresses in SANs of type dNSName
to allow for this. Jody has said he would endorse. I need another endorser.
The proposed change is this (added text between + signs): Subject Alternative Name Extension
Each entry MUST be either a dNSName containing the Fully‐Qualified Domain
Name +or the IP address of a server,+ or an iPAddress containing the IP
address of a server
