Description Miloslav Trmač 2012-07-10 18:09:23 UTC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check that (ip addr ls|grep inet6.*global) doesn't return anything
2. $ openssl s_server -accept 64000
> Using default temp DH parameters
> getaddrinfo: Name or service not known
>   0 items in the session cache
3. # ip addr add ::2/128 scope global dev lo
4. $ openssl s_server -accept 64000
Additional info:
With AI_ADDRCONFIG and no global IPv6 address, getaddrinfo(NULL, "64000", hints->ai_family==AF_INET6) does not resolve into an address (due to AI_ADDRCONFIG it only wants to return an IPv4 address); init_server() treats this as a fatal error and does not try IPv4 at all (nor does it manage to bind to ::1 in IPv6, which would accept both IPv4 and IPv6).

The loop in init_server() looks somewhat suspect, but that's just a vague notion, I _don't_ know for sure how this is supposed to be done correctly.  See #808147 for relevant discussion.
