Description Kenneth Porter 2008-06-26 19:08:32 EDT
The SRPM patch dovecot-1.1-default-settings.patch changes the default interface
list from "*" to "[::]" which causes dovecot to listen only on all IPv6
interfaces instead of on all IPv4 interfaces. The comments in the configuration
file suggest using "*, [::]" to listen to both. What is the desired policy? I
was expecting at least IPv4 service to work without customization. (I'm
upgrading a CentOS 5 system.)

The default "listen" setting is consistent with this setting in the 1.0.x series
in F-9 and earlier. It used the "[::] listens in on all IPv6 intefaces, but may
 also listen on all IPV4 interfaces depending on the OS" clause. So now I need
to check what has changed, whether the listen code in dovecot 1.1 (vs, the
1.0.x) or newer glibc is the cause or ...
