HP-UX 11i v1.6 critical impact:

inet6_rth_* and inet6_opt_* APIs - now available (CrUn165)

NW Impacts

Problem description

The inet6_rth_* and inet6_opt_* Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) (as defined in RFC 2292, Advanced Sockets API for IPv6) exist on Tru64 UNIX and are now available with HP-UX 11i v2 update 2.

These advanced IPv6 APIs are part of the IPv6 extension set. IPv6 is the next generation of the Internet Protocol. These APIs manipulate, retrieve, and initialize routing headers and IPv6 options.
