Thread: Address family not supported by protocol

  1. #1

    Default Address family not supported by protocol

    Hi everyone,
    I am setting up an Amanda backup server 2.6.0p2 for the 1st time. Installed the server and client from source using the following config options.

    Server
    ./configure --with-user=amanda --with-group=disk --with-config=DailySet1
    --with-bsdtcp-security --with-amandahosts --with-bsdudp-security
    --without-ipv6

    Client
    ./configure --with-user=amanda --with-group=disk
    --with-config=DailySet1 --with-bsdtcp-security --with-amandahosts
    --without-server --without-ipv6 --with-bsdudp-security

    Amcheck runs fine, and returns no issues. When I try to run an actual
    backup however it fails. I get the following error in the chunker log
    file from the server

    Can anyone advise on the next step to resolve this issue.

    Kind Regards

    Does 'localhost' map to an ipv6 address?

    Hi Dustin,

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:4434 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:4434 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:467009 (456.0 Kb) TX bytes:467009 (456.0 Kb)

    Disabled IPv6, but still getting the same errors. Any ideas much appreciated...

    Actually, I was looking for the results of resolving 'localhost', not your loopback interface.

    $ host localhost

    Sorry,

    host localhost

    returns "localhost has address 127.0.0.1" on both machines

    Many thanks
