Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 146920
in.authd not listening on IPv6
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 EST
Description of problem:
Adding "flags = IPv6" to /etc/xinetd.d/auth does not get in.authd listening on IPv6.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3 x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure in.authd (authd RPM) is installed/configured/listening to regular IPv4 requests
("netstat -na" shows a ":113...LISTEN" line).
2. Add "flags = IPv6" to /etc/xinetd.d/auth
3. Reload or restart xinetd ("service xinetd reload" or "... restart")
The command "netstat -na" shows the same ":113...LISTEN" line it did before, looking very
IPv4-ish. "netstat -na --inet6" does not show a ":113...LISTEN" line. "nmap -6 -P0 -p 113
-sT ::1" shows that port 113/tcp is closed.
Should be like finger: Taking the exact same action with finger (adding "flags = IPv6" to /
etc/xinetd.d/finger and reloading xinetd) gets finger listening for both IPv4 and IPv6
connections. "netstat -na --inet6" shows a ":79...LISTEN" line. "finger user@::1" works.
This info provided to Adrian Havill who suggested I open a Bugzilla, if I was sure this was
only a problem with authd and not other IPv6 services... which the above seems to bear
i had no problem getting authd to work:
[root@gaijin xinetd.d]# ifconfig eth0 | grep inet6
inet6 addr: fe80::2b0:d0ff:fe3e:cae6/64 Scope:Link
[root@gaijin xinetd.d]# grep -i flags /etc/xinetd.d/auth
flags = IPv6
[root@gaijin xinetd.d]# service xinetd reload
Reloading configuration: [ OK ]
[root@gaijin xinetd.d]# grep -i ^auth /etc/services
auth 113/tcp authentication tap ident
auth 113/udp authentication tap ident
[root@gaijin xinetd.d]# netstat -na --inet6 | grep 113
tcp 0 0 :::113 :::*
reopening to re-assign the pkg... in the case that this is
I am new to xinetd. I have kernel 188.8.131.52 compiled for ipv6. but telnet and
ftp services do not work. I downloaded xinetd-2.3.13-4.src.rpm and installed.
In the xinetd-2.3.13 directory i did ./configure --with-inet6 --with-libwrap.
and did a make && make install. but still ipv6 services are still not enabled.
please can anyone help me?
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
This bug has bee fixed in xinetd-2.3.14-9.fc6
