Subject [users@httpd] IPv6 on Windows XP
Date Fri, 01 Nov 2002 22:31:58 GMT
Windows XP Pro w/SP1 - IPv6 installed
Apache 2.0.43

Installed Apache and working fine over IPv4.  Trying to get working over
IPv6.  If i use the Listen statement in httpd.conf (Listen 8080) i can
connect using http://[::1]:8080 (ie, localhost), but can not connect using
my site local or global IPv6 addresses.

Tried adding the Listen statement:

Listen [::]:8080

and i get the following error:
[Fri Nov 01 17:24:28 2002] [crit] (731001)No such host is known.  :
er: failed to set up sockaddr for [::]
Syntax error on line 120 of C:/Program Files/Apache
Listen setup failed

I get the same error if i try to listen on ::1, or any other IPv6 address

The documentation states:

  *) Apache is now IPv6-capable.  On systems where APR supports IPv6,
     Apache gets IPv6 listening sockets by default.  Additionally, the
     Listen, NameVirtualHost, and <VirtualHost> directives support IPv6
     numeric address strings (e.g., "Listen [fe80::1]:8080").
     [Jeff Trawick]

So i was under the impression that this would work.  Does the APR on Windows
XP support IPv6?  Anyone else experienced this problem?
