I'm experimenting with IPv6 mail. There's a widely used set of
tcpserver ipv6 patches broken dns lookups
IPv6 patches at http://www.fefe.de/ucspi/
They mostly work, but the IPv6 rDNS lookups don't. I looked at the code,
which looks like it's supposed to work so my first guess, considering how
low-level the DNS code is, is that it's a 32/64 bit problem since I'm
running on an amd64 box. Is this a known problem?
The web site says "There are quite a few servers using tcpserver out
there. If they try to parse the IP addresses, they are not IPv6 ready and
need to be touched." I have no idea what that means.
