#2925 closed defect (fixed)

IPv6 endpoints cause authentication to fail

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Dalius
Priority: normal Component: AuthOpenIdPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


I don't have the exact error (because I solved this by changing the hosts AAAA (ipv6) record to something else, but it failed on the INET_ATOI call. I'm guessing it expects the endpoint to resolve to an ipv4 address and complains when it sees something else (like an ipv6 address). Both my trac site and the endpoint are actual ipv6-enabled hosts.

Something what I have not expected. Yes, currently plugin works only with IPv4 addresses. I will look how to solve that.

Resolution: fixed

Get newest version of plugin and disable check_ip. Check IP is designed for IPv4. In the future better solution will be required but while IPv6 is not widely used I don't worry about that (sorry).

thanks, this seems to have solved the issue.

Good to hear that. In the future we can implement IPv6 IP check but it is not critical yet.
