Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The rpm utility was unable to download and install packages the remote locations of which were specified with an IPv6 address and a specific path format. Now, rpm automatically uses the "--globoff" option with IPv6 addresses, which turns off cURL globbing, and allows packages to be properly downloaded and installed in the described scenario.

Description Hangbin Liu 2014-03-13 01:47:18 UTC
Description of problem:
curl do not support ipv6 on RHEL6.5

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# curl -V
curl 7.19.7 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.19.7 NSS/ zlib/1.2.3 libidn/1.18 libssh2/1.4.2
Protocols: tftp ftp telnet dict ldap ldaps http file https ftps scp sftp
Features: GSS-Negotiate IDN IPv6 Largefile NTLM SSL libz

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # curl -v -6 http://[2001::1]/

Actual results:
curl: (3) [globbing] error: bad range specification after pos 9

Expected results:
get the html from ipv6 host

Additional info:

rpm use curl to get packages from server, so it will fail if we usr "rpm -ivh http://[$ipv6_addr]/pakcage_name.rpm".

BTW, wget works well.
# wget http://[2001::1]/packages/
--2014-03-13 17:38:19--  http://[2001::1]/packages/
Connecting to 2001::1:80... connected.

You need to use the -g/--globoff option.  Please read the FAQ:
