Bug #18231 IPv6 sockets cannot be used

Description: ------------ Using connect() with a numerical IPv6 address does not work. This is because such addresses contain a colon, which is not in recognized as an IP address. Instead, it is treated as a hostname. This will be tried to resolve, which of course also fails. This patch checks for the colon, and if found puts brackets around the address: --- /usr/share/php/Net/Socket.php 2011-02-01 14:32:50.000000000 +0100 +++ Socket.php 2011-02-01 17:14:27.000000000 +0100 @@ -122,9 +122,9 @@ if (!$addr) { return $this->raiseError('$addr cannot be empty'); - } elseif (strspn($addr, '.0123456789') == strlen($addr) || + } elseif (strspn($addr, ':.0123456789') == strlen($addr) || strstr($addr, '/') !== false) { - $this->addr = $addr; + $this->addr = substr($addr, ':') ? '['.$addr.']' : $addr; } else { $this->addr = @gethostbyname($addr); }

Please note that this patch ONLY makes numerical IPv6 addresses work. Using IPv6 host names will not work until is fixed.

Why this obvious bug is still not fixed?

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
