RE: Inetd not listening on IPv6


It works perfect using tcp46 or udp 46 for the IPv6 enabled apps

Best Regards

Try "tcp46".
The usagi inetd support 4 different configurations on a single port.

 1."tcp4" (or "tcp") only
    -> ipv4 only
 2."tcp6" only
    -> ipv6 only (not ipv4)
 3."tcp46" only
    -> ipv4 and ipv6; ipv4 is served by ipv6 daemon with ipv4-mapped
 4.both "tcp4" (or "tcp") and "tcp6" at the same port.
    -> ipv4 and ipv6 will be served by ipv4 daemon and ipv6 daemon

If you use original kernel, you can not use 4.

BTW, I describe above behavior in inetd.8 like this:

     The protocol must be a valid protocol as given in /etc/protocols.
     ples might be ``tcp'' or ``udp'', both of which imply IPv4 for backward
     compatibility.  The names ``tcp4'' and ``udp4'' specify IPv4 only.  The
     names ``tcp6'' and ``udp6'' specify IPv6 only; inetd will reject /
     packets from ipv4 clients.  The names ``tcp46'' and ``udp46'' specify
     that the entry accepts both IPv4 and IPv6 connections via a wildcard
     PF_INET6 socket.  Rpc based services are specified with the ``rpc/tcp''
     or ``rpc/udp'' service type.

Isn't that file included in your package, Yamamori-san?
