Description Jacques Rodary 2004-05-02 12:06:54 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to connect to site with ipv6 NS (e.g.: ftp.crihan.fr) I
get "Failed to create a IPv6 socket: Famille d'adresses non supportée
par le protocol" error with  2.4.22-1.2188.nptlsmp kernel, and "no
route to host" with a custom 2.6.5 kernel compiled with ipv6 modules.
It isn't related to iptables, as stopping it doesn't change anything.
Nothing wrong with gftp-2.0.14-5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducable:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch gftp-2.0.17-0-FC1
2.Try to connect to ftp.crihan.fr 
Actual results:
When connection is established, I get disconnected with above messages.

Expected results:
Same as with gftp-2.0.14-5

Additional info:
No problem with FC2T2
