This error comes from mdns_mini and means ipv6 is not installed (if I'm reading the code right, anyway). It probably needs re-wording or removing as an message as the lack of ipv6 is generally uninteresting. > OS vendors are shipping IPv6 to install by default now (including MS, RedHat etc) however very few organisations configure it or even when it is configured it's dodgy, I seem to be constantly having to specify rsync -4 or ssh -4 or scp -4 because of IPv6 network problems. CVSNT probably should have a 'use IPv4 only' setting (both the client and the server) but it'll have to wait. > It takes more than having it enabled to cause something like that.. it would both a machine running router advertisement to both give it a global address and advertise a default route, but have that router unable to actually respond. That's quite hard to do accidentally... the equivalent of 'accidentally' installing a DHCP server, then stuffing up the config. That said, in common with most other apps we should probably have a -4 switch to cover these cases (I must admit it's never occurred to me before as our ipv6 works :p). Tony
