telnet should not use gethostbyname
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
telnet still uses gethostbyname. This can cause problems in IPv6 environments,
in part due to the way gethostbyname etc are implemented.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.nm -D --undef /usr/bin/telnet | fgrep gethostbyname
The attached mostly untested patch should fix it. For real IPv6 support a lot
more work is needed.
