Subject RE: [users@httpd] Listening apache on IPv6 (dual IPv4-IPv6 machine)
Date Mon, 21 Jan 2008 08:43:56 GMT
Hi Raminder,


If you have taken the binary directly from the Apache site, it will not
support because by default the IPv6 support is disabled.


For this you need to compile the Apache yourself with the corresponding flag
set for IPv6 option.



Thanks and Regards,

Subject: [users@httpd] Listening apache on IPv6 (dual IPv4-IPv6 machine)


Hi group,

I'm facing a problem in configuring apache 2.2.4 to listen on IPv6. 


Configuration: windows server 2003 SP1

Apache 2.2.4


IPconfig: / fd00:b00:ffff:3::3


when I install and configure apache to listen on 8088 port using IPv4
works fine. Test page displayed at http://localhost:8088 & 


But when I change Listen 8088 to Listen [fd00:b00:ffff:3::3]:8088 in
httpd.conf and ::1/fd00:b00:ffff:3::3 against localhost ( in /etc/hosts file)
and restart apache.. it won't get start. It says check error in evet viewer. 

there are 3 messages:

1) The apache service named reported the following error: >>>
[date:time][crit](OS 11004) The requested name is valid, but no data of the
request type was found : alloc-listener: failed to setup sockaddr for

2) The apache service named reported the following error: >>> syntex error on
line 53 of httpd.conf .. which is  Listen [fd00:b00:ffff:3::3]:8088

3) The apache service named reported the following error: >>> Listen setup


Can you help in resolving this issue? is Line "Listen
[fd00:b00:ffff:3::3]:8088" is correct in syntax?


-- i checked tomcat running on IPv6..its working fine with contents of
etc/hosts file.


thanks for helping...
