Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2015-12-17 16:04:38 CET
We use the fake IPv4 address for PAM_RHOST in our sessions. libaudit will always do a getaddrinfo() on this address with AI_ADDRCONFIG set. This call will fail on a IPv6 only system and this error can end up in the log:

> resolve_addr: cannot resolve hostname

To fix this we would need to use an IPv6 address instead on these systems, and have some logic to determine which to use.
