easyserver does not work on IP6
« on: July 01, 2018, 02:33:46 PM »
If you have a real IP6 and IPv4 ("dual stack"), the easyserver may not work, if you bind to both :: and 0.0.0.0. You have to edit simuconf.tab, to either 0.0.0.0 or ::. Otherwise the easyserver will get the IP from the router but then wil get first the IP6 for the listserver. On the list server these two will not match, and hence your game will not appear on the online listing. Or, much better, get a dynamicIP with both IPv4 and IP6. (But I am not sure, that this is easy and for free.)

r8528 will fix this and allow conenctions from both addresses. I will prepare a new release to correct this and another error with the announcement code as quickly as possible.
