clamd and IPv6
Hello.

Does anybody use clamd with IPv6 ? I attempted to do it, but
it not works. All complicated by the fact that it is my first
experience with IPv6 also. I attemted to bind clamd to localhost.

clamd.conf part:

TCPSocket 3310
TCPAddr ::1

Error:

Dec 26 12:06:56 clamd: ERROR: TCP: Couldn't configure socket, check your configuration
Dec 26 12:06:56 clamd: Closing the main socket.

# ip a|grep -B3 "::1"
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
inet 127.0.0.1/8 brd 127.255.255.255 scope host lo
inet6 ::1/128 scope host

As can be seen that clamd assembled correctly with IPv6 support ?

clamd doesn't support IPv6. Only freshclam does.
