(usagi-users 00049) Re: About IPv6 on Linux



Thanks for Yuji's reply.

I wonder what's the difference between glibc-2.2 and USAGI glibc ?

And if I install the USAGI glibc, what will happen to the current glibc-based application?
Will they work well after the USAGI glibc without being re-compiled?

Thanks.

Regards,
Wang Hui.

All the core routers we used in the testbed are Linux OS, but I found that we cannot obtain a pure IPv6 network because of the DNS problem.  We find that The Linux OS cannot resolve a dormain name via IPv6 socket interface.
