I used net-ftp/oftpd-0.3.7-r3 for several years.
Since this morning it went to version net-ftp/oftpd-0.3.7-r8.
Unfortunately I can not get it to work

Code:
gentoocyril cyril # oftpd -N ftp /home/ftp/
error_init: 97 error creating socket; %s



Does someone have an idea ?

Thanks

Just took a quick peek at the source, and the following appears to be the segment where the error is printed:
Code:

    /* Put some information in syslog */
    syslog(LOG_INFO, "Binding interface '%s', port %d, max clients %d\n", buf,
        ntohs(SINPORT(&sock_addr)), max_connections);


    /* okay, finally do some socket manipulation */
    fd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
    if (fd == -1) {
        error_init(err, errno, "error creating socket; %s", strerror(errno));
        return 0;
    }

Anything in /var/log/messages?

Also - according to my latest sync, oftpd-0.3.7-r7 is the stable version. Tried that?

Paul

I don't have support for ipv6 in kernel and USE="-ipv6" in globals use flags.

I compiled the kernel with ipv6, oftpd without ipv6 support, and it works now.
I think to make a bug report

Sounds like the -ipv6 isn't being obeyed completely, yeah.

Good to hear you got it going. :)
