[openFATE 312491] Explicit IPv6 support for YaST printer module
Feature changed by: Satoru Matsumoto (HeliosReds)
Feature #312491, revision 2
Title: Explicit IPv6 support for YaST printer module

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Johannes Meixner (jsmeix)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
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
- https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=697833 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 both.

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