Description of problem:
Not sure if this is a cockpit or a systemd problem, but is affecting cockpit for me.
I installed cockpit and cockpit-ws and expected to access its web interface over regular networking. But systemd only listens on tcp6 (IPv6) por 9090, not regular IPv4.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q systemd cockpit-ws

How reproducible:
Apparently always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install cockpit-ws
2. systemd enable cockpit.socket
3. netstat -an | grep 9090 

Actual results (output of netstat):
tcp6       0      0 :::9090                 :::*                    LISTEN

Expected results (expected output of netstat):
tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN
tcp6       0      0 :::9090                 :::*                    LISTEN

Sounds like a cockpit problem. It all depends what they configure in the .socket unit. If they use "ListenStream= [::]:9090" they get two sockets, one for ipv4 and one for ipv6.

This is what we use:


Avi, what does ListenStream say on your machine?
Comment 3 Stef Walter 2016-04-27 08:12:38 EDT
No response from Avi. Closing this bug.

On a default install:

$ netstat -an | grep 9090
tcp6       0      0 :::9090                 :::*                    LISTEN
