[New: openFATE 312499] Explicit IPv6 support for YaST printer module
Feature added by: Johannes Meixner (jsmeix)

Feature #312499, revision 1
Title: Explicit IPv6 support for YaST printer module

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Johannes Meixner (jsmeix)
Partner organization:

Currently there is not any kind of special IPv6 support in yast2-printer.
Currently IPv6 works only where it is compatible to IPv4 but there are cases
where IPv6 needs special handling: For example the tests whether or not a
remote host is accessible run "ping IP-address or hostname" which fails if
IP-address is an IPv6 address because for IPv6 ping6 must be used. See

Unfortunately ping6 cannot be used for IPv4 addresses so that yast2-printer
needs to implement special distinction of cases in particular if a hostname is
given depending on whether or not this hostname has an IPv4 or IPv6 address or

Probably there are some more special distinction of cases needed to distinguish
between IPv4 and IPv6 stuff.

Test Case:
Use yast2-printer in an IPv6-only network.

Use Case:
Use yast2-printer in an IPv6 network.

Business case (Partner benefit): Why may someone want to use IPv6?
