Problems with binding to local addresses
|Reported by:||mevenson||Owned by:|
Something in the usocket code seems to have problems interpreting ip6 addresses, so people have been running into the following error message in attempting to run hunchentoot, clack, et. al. on localhost:
<madnificent> synchromesh: I get #(0 0 0 0 0 0 0) where usocket expects something of length 4 ... interesting [20:06]
I suspect that ABCL is binding to *all* local addresses, and has an active ip6 stack. I think that the dotted quad routines within USOCKET are getting fed ip6 addresses in some form.
WORKAROUND: use http://127.0.0.1:5000 instead of localhost in HTTP User Agent.
