#11873 new Bug Report - General

mythfrontend cannot play recordings if http_proxy is set

Reported by: Jan Ceuleers <jan.ceuleers@…> Owned by:

Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.27-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:

Description

If the http_proxy variable is set in the environment of mythfrontend it cannot start playback of recordings, logging "MythSocketThread?(-1) mythsocket.cpp:649 (ConnectToHostReal?) - MythSocket?(3ee2be0:-1): Failed to connect to (192.168.1.38:6543) Operation on socket is not supported".

This issue did not manifest itself in 0.26-fixes; it first occurred in the release version of 0.27-fixes.

I have a proxy configuration like so:

$ set | grep _proxy http_proxy=http://proxy.xperim.be:3128/ https_proxy=https://proxy.xperim.be:3128/ no_proxy=localhost,127.0.0.0/8,.xperim.be,192.168.0.0/16

A simple

$ unset http_proxy

before starting mythfrontend fixes the issue.

This may be similar to #10633.

oh this was so annoying - I just hit it with 0.27 updates pushed to rpmfusion. netstat checking, config checking, it all worked yesterday... finally hit this. yes http_proxy unsetting does it.
