critical impact:

IPv6 socket options - not available (CrUn135)

NW Impacts

Problem description

IPv6-specific socket options accessed using the setsockopt and getsockopt calls exist only on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX.

The following socket options are not available on HP-UX:

  • IPV6_PKTOPTIONS - Deprecated Advanced API socket option.

  • IPV6_RXHDR - Used with RAW sockets to get full protocol headers. By default, Tru64 UNIX delivers only the protocol header specified in the socket call.

  • IPV6_V6ONLY - Disable/Enable IPv6-only support on AF_INET6 wildcard sockets.
