Description Olivier Benghozi 2003-05-27 19:23:19 UTC
Description of problem:
Netstat is unable to print full ipv6 addresses. More, it's unable to print 
ipv4 on ipv6 sockets adresses (::ffff:a.b.c.d addresses). Output formatting of 
netstat is trashed.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
IPV6 is enabled.
Some ipv6 client connect on the ipv6 server.
In the same time, ipv4 client connects on processes using ipv6 sockets.

Command used: netstat -n

Actual Results:
tcp        0      0 ::ffff: ::ffff:10.200.200.:3155 ESTABLISHED
tcp        0    298 2001:abc:def::100:3378 3ffe:501:4819:2000:2:80 ESTABLISHED 

You see somethings lacks at the end of each foreign address.

Expected Results:
tcp        0      0 ::ffff: ::ffff: 
tcp        0    298 2001:abc:def::100:3378 
3ffe:501:4819:2000:2000:203:47ff:fea5:3085:80 ESTABLISHED

Addresses are complete!

Additional info:
This bug renders netstat useless if ipv6 is in use.

Comment 1 Radek Vokal 2004-12-10 15:30:58 UTC
The space of IPv6 adress was extended in net-tools-1.60-40. There
won't be a backport to RH9.
