#2574 closed defect (fixed)

eventdns complains about IPv6 nameserver in resolv.conf

On my IPv6-enabled network I have these lines in /etc/resolv.conf:

nameserver ::1

These entries to my own running name server. At start-up tor logs this line:

[warn] eventdns: Unable to add nameserver ::1: error 2

I understand that IPv6 routing is not in place yet, but shouldn't Tor be OK with using a local IPv6 interface for name resolution?

This is with Tor v2.1.29, a version that is shown in the Version drop-down list below.

a version that is shown in the Version

Should be "that is NOT shown in the Version". Sigh. The most recent v2.1.x version listed is 2.1.26.

Actually, have you tried any of the 0.2.2.x releases? Those are supposed to add support for IPv6 nameservers.

Okay, tried it out: it turns out we had a "socket(PF_INET,...)" that should have been "socket(sa->sa_family,...)". See branch bug2574 in my public repository.

This is a bugfix on 0.2.1; maybe we _should_ apply it there.

looks fine. I think we can get away with calling this a new feature.

Well, it's a feature we have claimed to have before. So IMO it's a bugfix. :)

merging to 0.2.1 and later . Thanks!
