How does one set a node name address to IPv6?
But more specifically, how does one connect to an IPv6 node instance?
With IPv4: > iex --name email@example.com --cookie abc
It works fine and I can connect two nodes
With IPv6: > iex --name node@fe12::345:6789:1234:5678 --cookie abc
The node started but I can’t connect two nodes with:
I think you may need to specify
--erl "-proto_dist inet6_tcp" too. It’s mentioned on the
erl man page.
That doesn’t seem to be right
What does not seem to be right?
Does @chrismcg’s suggestion not work for you?
The nodes seem to start correctly like so:
iex --name test@ipv6 --erl “-proto_dist inet6_tcp” --cookie test
However attempting to connect them with from another node:
For me it worked…
I can’t test across a network though, since my current network is IPv4 only. I will try to connect over a IPv6 enabled network later this evening (can take up to 12 hours until I am able to test!).
