Forum OpenACS Development: Re: NaviServer on Windows: [ns_info address] returns IP v6 address

please explain, why you believe the result is incorrect for your Linux box. You mentioned that the hostname of your Linux box is "project-open-v50-dev" and ping project-open-v50-dev pings to So, the result is perfectly correct.

I got the "bug" - my bug. I assumed that ns_info address on AOLserver 4.5.1 Linux as intuitively required. But it doesn't. I've just installed AOLserver 4.5.1 and checked.

So both system implement ns_info address in the same way, and reverting wouldn't fix my issue.

Conclusion: You could change the implementation in NaviServer in order to prefer the IPv4 address over the IPv6 address. But otherwise everything is like it was.

=> We'll work with our own implementation of extracting the IP from ifconfig/ipconfig tool output.


The easiest way to find all IP-addresses of the the actual hostname is probably:
ns_addrbyhost -all [ns_info hostname]
