Subject [users@httpd] IPv6 and mod_proxy_balancer: a bug or my mistake
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2009 19:23:15 GMT
Dear all,

I've got a public IPv6 Network for testing and I wanted to test it with 
some Apache reverse proxy stuff with loadbalancing.

The loadbalancer is a Ubuntu with stock Apache 2.2.8.

So I tried:

BalancerMember http://[2001:41e0:1234:0:1234:1234:1234:1234]:8080/xwiki
BalancerMember http://lala:8080/xwiki smax=10

The first one ipv4 worked pefectly.
The second one was delivering a emtpy page with no error message.
Third one is the same like the second one, just having a entry in 
/etc/hosts for host "lala" (ipv6)

When disabling one and three, balancer-manager reports "OK" and some 
traffic, but only a empty page is displayed.

When trying to reach 
http://[2001:41e0:1234:0:1234:1234:1234:1234]:8080/xwiki directly in a 
browser, it also works perfectly.

Why does the second entry not work? Did I made a mistake or is this a bug?

Thanks for any hints,
