Listen block for IPv6 with UnrealIRCd4.0.18

Post by Paul DK » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:26 am

So I've googled all over the place and I've looked on this forum and for the life of me, I can't figure out what I've messed up here.

I've never used IPv6 before so this is, admittedly, completely new territory for me but this is what I've done:
  • At domain registrar, added AAA records for the IPv6 addresses of each server
  • Configured the RDNS at each server to reflect the correct subdomain.domain.tld
  • Added the following line to each unrealircd.conf file, appropriate for each server:

Code: Select all

listen {
	ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
	port 6667-6670;
};

listen {
	ip [0x00:0x00::x00x:00xx:xx00:00xx]:6667-6670;
};

listen {
	ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
	port 6697;
	options { ssl; };
};

listen {
	ip [0x00:0x00::x00x:00xx:xx00:00xx]:6697;
	options { ssl; };
};
After /rehash'ing the servers, each report the following errors:

Code: Select all

[02:23:06] -subdomain.domain.com- from subdomain.domain.com: Paul is remotely rehashing server config file
[02:23:07] -subdomain.domain.com- Loading IRCd configuration..
[02:23:07] -subdomain.domain.com- error: /home/user/unrealircd/conf/unrealircd.conf:99: listen: illegal listen::ip ([0x00:0x00::x00x:00xx:xx00:00xx]:6667-6670). Must be either '*' or contain a valid IP.
[02:23:07] -subdomain.domain.com- error: /home/user/unrealircd/conf/unrealircd.conf:109: listen: illegal listen::ip ([0x00:0x00::x00x:00xx:xx00:00xx]:6697). Must be either '*' or contain a valid IP.
[02:23:07] -subdomain.domain.com- error: 2 errors encountered
[02:23:07] -subdomain.domain.com- error: IRCd configuration failed to pass testing
I know I've missed something here, probably to do with how the config is for Unrealircd4 compared to the 3 branch. But however much I look, I can't find any help. As I've said, I'm probably missing something really obvious.

Anyway, I'd really appreciate any help.

Thanks

Paul

Ok, so its too late to delete my post now lol.

Just wanted to say, I'm an idiot!! ... correct block is below :roll:

Code: Select all

listen {
	ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
	port 6667-6670;
};

listen {
	ip 0x00:0x00::x00x:00xx:xx00:00xx; /* No [] square brackets */
	port 6667-6670; /* Ports on separate line */
};

listen {
	ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;
	port 6697;
	options { ssl; };
};

listen {
	ip [0x00:0x00::x00x:00xx:xx00:00xx; /* No [] square brackets */
	port 6697; /* Ports on separate line */
	options { ssl; };
};
Just thought I'd update this with what I did to fix it, incase anyone else does what I did :oops:
