Hello Hans

I can't see an error but I can see, that the output is unable to print the version number and the PID and also nc (netcat) is throwing an error.
My question: Do you really need IPv6 on your Raspberry Pi or can it be disabled ? I understand when you switched to an external IPv6 IP Address, but is your internal network also complete IPv6 or is there an option to disable IPV6 on your Raspberry Pi ??

...and what is the output of ./cumulusmx.sh -s

I can't see an error either and Cumulus is OK. But it is my firm belief, that no messages should be given when not required. En besides that, I do not understand where they are coming from since everything is working s as expected. To be sure: I think the Pi is listening on both the v4 and v6 addresses. I communicate with the Pi on the v4 address via the browser, WinSCP, MobaXterm etc... All through the v4 address, maybe it is secretly translated to a v6? Anyway, the Pi maybe connects through a v6, but I do not have anything to do with it. Besides that, I would have to find out how to block v6 addresses which - apart fom the time it takes to research - I actually do not want to do: time progresses, I normally do not step back. So if v6 becomes a feature I accept that. To be short, eventually tools have to progress. Maybe I am the first, but I am sure I won't be the last. And I think it is a bad idea the Cumulus community does not go with it.

Hey Hans, give Jank a break !!

You've got an amateur-supported add-on to an amateur product that you may not have even paid for. It's inevitable that it may contain bugs, otr that bugs will emerge as other system parts are updated. You've updated to IPv6, but most of us haven't got this on our internal networks (and don't need it - I'm a long way short of the 4000 million devices that IPv4 can support on a home network). IPv6 didn't exist when Jank wrote his script, and he doesn't have it now to do testing!!

Despite that, it works and you've got nothing worth complaining about!

Would it be appropriate for me to complain that he has spelt "finnished" wrongly in the yellow text? Or maybe I should put up with it, seeing that his English (and yours!) is much better than mein Deutsch.

Look at how fast he reacted when you told him lst July that there was a problem when a password contains an = symbol - that's fantastic support for an amateur product, so give him credit and praise!

Meanwhile, your image shows that your Pi has BOTH an IPv4 and an IPv6 address. It looks like you can simply forget about the IPv6 one and get on with things using IPv4 only.

I've read that it's difficult to turn off IPv6 in an RPi - the global system setting doesn't control all processes, so it can be a right fiddle to turn it off reliably.
Could you instead tell your router to not assign IPv6 addresses for internal devices?

@experimentor: I don't know what your problem with my comment exactly is, but I am fully aware everybody is doing this in its free time, I regard myself as part of the community. I do not offend or curse or swear so live with the fact that I , being a non-native English speaker, don't posess the briljant subtleties by which the English try to kill each other in parliament fighting a brexit. I do not intend to write a shakespearian drama killing everybody while bringing out the most beautifull language, I simply state some things I think are relevant. Language is not saying everything as the hatred covered by some words opposes the love covered by others, everything misunderstood by all. And yes, rereading some of my comments later, i sometimes think it could have been said differently.

But having said that, I think most of the points you made, I made myself: everything works but there are messages.
And whether you have millions of devices or not, ipv6 is a fact of life. Live with it.

And to answer your question: no, I can't switch ipv6 off at the router.
And to add: I will not configure my devices retrograde. That conservative attitude in the end creates problems without solving anything.

OK, so I accept your apology. Maybe it is all just tone that I am over-interpreting and which you never intended, but the extract I have pasted above comes across rather rudely as
"Your script should be perfect. I didn't do anything wrong and I'm not going to change what I do, even if that would be easy. Other people will eventually get v6 too and it's disgraceful that your script doesn't cope." Now, that might be reasonable if you'd paid $500 to Micro$oft or Google with all their resources, but when there isn't actually a problem and you're writing to a fellow amateur who has given you something useful and for free, and which he probably cannot test with a v6 network without buying a new fancy router that he doesn't need, then it's .... well, it annoyed me.

Well, we won't continue this discussion as far as I am concerned, but I would like to emphasize the point of how difficult international communication is: just read my comment, I did not apologise, I explained.

I use words you would not use: it is the subsequential annoyance which bothers you and troubles the communication.
Try to read the points, I know how the free software world works, I am not here to offend, neither to be offended.

No doubt I will improve, but the subtleties of English politeness will probably always escape me.
Live with non-native English speakers and you may appreciate the world a lot more.

Btw:

I was out in the past days so I was unable to participate at this discussion.
I will try to find a solution to hide IPv6 information from the output.

kind regards

@Hans

can you please check in this version (below) if the output page is without errors now ?


In case not, please send me a screenshot of the error
I fixed the wrongly displayed Verison Number of CumulusMX which is being released and I hope I fixed the output of any IPv6 Information.
Unfortunately I am currently unable to turn IPv6 on here, by an easy way......

@ExperiMentor: thank you for jumping in here and protecting me ..... :) but since I am also not a native speaker, I was not aware/recognized that the tone
HansR used was rude.....so don't worry

thank you
Jan

Hello Hans

I missed to fix the error with the version verification which gave a malformed output but now it's fixed but there is still the IPv6 thing.
Can you please give me the output of the following command on your system ?

ifconfig -a | awk '/(cast)/ { print $2 }' | cut -d':' -f2 | head -1

thanks in advance

Sorry I have only just picked up the recent posts made in this thread. I reported similar problems which Jank kindly identified as an IPv6 issue (see a few posts back in early February this year). As I reported at the time, one of his solutions worked fine. I guess the remaining question I have - of Jank - is would you advise those of us with this problem to use the new script you have posted or the previous solution:
I assume, you are still using an IPv4 Network ?
If you think it is safe to turn IPv6 permanently off, follow this:
nano /etc/sysctl.d/01-disable-ipv6.conf to create an empty file and insert this line:

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
Save.
This will permanently disable IPv6 (If you need IPv6 sometime in the future, remove this file......
