Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135217
IPv6 support in wget should be enabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:51 EST
Description of problem:
wget has IPv6 support, but it isn't enabled currently, so downloading
from IPv6 hosts fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, see below.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. host -t AAAA ipv6.host.tld
-> ipv6.host.tld has AAAA address ::1
1. wget http://ipv6.host.tld
-> --22:04:51-- http://ipv6.host.tld/
-> => `index.html'
-> Resolving ipv6.host.tld... failed: Host not found.
IPv6 support in wget isn't enabled; the following is working for me:

IPv6 support in wget should be enabled.
Wget's current IPV6 support breaks downloads on hosts without IPV6
interfaces. Try to disable IPV6 on your machine p.e. if you have
alias net-pf-10 off
install ipv6 /bin/true
in your modprobe.conf file and reboot (or get rid of the already
loaded ipv6 module by any other means).
I'm waiting for the upstream maintainers to fix this.
Oh sorry, I didn't recognize this (I'm already living in a only IPv4+6
world), you're totally right.
