IPv6 Support?

Post by xeronine » 05 Jul 2018, 19:03

Hi there,

So I can't seem to be able to get NZBget to respond using IPv6.

The only thing I could find is to try to change the "ControlIP" but I tried making it blank (NZBget fails to start up), "::", and "::1". None of them work.

How does one get this to work?

Thanks!

No problems on my Linux system with "::", and accessing via [::1].

But first things first: start nzbget, with :: filled out, and check on which IP address nzbget is listening:
Linux:

Code: Select all

netstat -lntep

Windows

Code: Select all

netstat -bno 
netstat -aon
Check for port 6789

On my Linux:

Code: Select all

sander@witte:~$ sudo netstat -lntep | grep 6789
tcp6       0      0 :::6789                 :::*                    LISTEN      1000       444722     30519/./nzbget

Sorry for the delay! Some other things broke in the mean time.

So I did as you suggested, and seems nzbget is only listening on the IPv4 address. It only shows tcp 0.0.0.0:6789. If I check a port like 443 it lists tcp and tcp6.

I did end up updating to the latest version of nzbget and it didn't make a difference. I was only one version behind, so it shouldn't have made much of a difference.

Frustrating!

And no sooner did I click 'Submit' a lightbulb turned on in my head.. The service is being loaded as the user 'nzbget'. I thought to try launching it as root instead and magically it works. Now to figure out why a user can't bind to an IPv6 address.

Thanks for your help. If you have any thoughts on why that might be the case, it'd be appreciated. I'll Google in the mean time!
