Bug#484477: wrong result from inet_ntop
Subject: libc6: wrong result from inet_ntop
*** Please type your report below this line ***
am sending this report again because i had no feedback from the 1st sending.
executing this code:
inet_ntop(AF_INET6, &farAddr.sin6_addr, ip_addr, INET6_ADDRSTRLEN);
if the client is using an ipv4 address (this program is using both IPv4
and 6) the resulting string within ip_addr will be something like:
The inet_ntop's man page says:
AF_INET6 converts IPv6-mapped IPv4 addresses into an IPv6 format.
I don't think that the resulting string is an IPv6. It is just neither
IPv4 nor IPv6.
