Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 130580
squid missing IPv6 support
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Current squid-2.5.STABLE5-5.x86_64 does not support IPv6.
I think squid doesn't in any currently by Red Hat delivered version
provide IPv6 support - platform independent.
I searched around a bit and noticed, that
provides IPv6 support but bases on cvs branch "squid-ipv6" and
porting seems very hard to me (maybe because I'm not a good c
expert), but a diff between the current Red Hat delivered version
and the cvs snapshot of the squid-ipv6 branch shows lots of
differences which must be very carefully ported.
But I also heard and read, that the current squid unstable has IPv6
enabled, I didn't verify that yet, because Red Hat also isn't willing
to ship development upstream versions...Bill Nottingham told me that
a few days ago (but he even said this friendlier *smile*).
As long as missing IPv6 support is no major issue nobody of the Red
Hat people will work out a patch, I think :-(
But I'm curious what's going up with IPv6 support in squid at Fedora
now, because it's a (with the time) increasing issue...
Maybe also relevant links:
This needs to be fixed upstream before we can ship an ipv6-enabled
squid. File it in
or (best bet) help the squid folks get squid-3.0 final out, so that
ipv6 support can be merged into it.
Reopening, attaching to IPv6 blocker bug.
ipv6 support is in squid-3.0 (current unstable version) so we should wait to
first stable 3.0...
