Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1279243
GNOME Control Center Network panel mangles IPv6 DNS server addresses
Last modified: 2016-12-05 22:45:38 EST
Description of problem:
Saved IPv6 addresses are displayed as IPv4 addresses.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add an IPv6 DNS server. (e.g. 2001:4860:4860::8888)
2. Save and close configuration window.
3. Open the configuration window again.
The IPv6 DNS server field contains a red-colored IPv4 address.
The IPv6 DNS server field contains the IPv6 address you just entered.
Note that this is purely a configuration loading issue -- the address is correctly saved and used by NetworkManager and can be displayed by e.g. "nmcli connection show Whatever".
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This was fixed in Fedora 25.
