https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=270457 Bug ID: 270457 Summary: Location wildcard port specification required for only IPv6 addresses in blacklistd.conf Product: Base System Version: Unspecified Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: bin Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org The specification for location in man blacklistd.conf is [<address>|<interface>][/mask][:<port>] with the note that IPv6 addresses should be enclosed in square brackets. While bare IPv4 addresses can be used without optional /mask or :port IPv6 will only work if the wildcard specification for port is used ie :* [2610:1c1:1:606c::50:3]:* Without the port wildcard this error is reported: getnum: /etc/blacklistd.conf, nn: Bad number for service  Thanks to Michael Grimm for discovering this workaround. Using IPv6 seems be like having enough roughage in your diet. Everyone knows you should be doing that but still eat junk food (IPv4). -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
