#12174 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Ping: Wrong command for IPv6

Reported by: werner@… Owned by: Jean-Yves Avenard <jyavenard@…>
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.27.1
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no



I just switched to an IPv6 only network. While startup, my proxy can't be located, as ping is called to check reachabillity of the server.

At least on Linux-Systems ping6 would be the right way, as the normal ping can't deal with the new addresses.

At least 0.27.1 has this problem, but I think the code didn't change since then.

A short try with replacing ping by ping6 in libs/libmythbase/mythmiscutil.cpp and everything is working.
