System: NetBSD aerowaves.warped.com 1.6D NetBSD 1.6D (AEROWAVES) #48: Thu Jul 11 18:22:44 EDT 2002 billc@dp2:/local/NetBSD/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/AEROWAVES i386
Upon upgrading my machine with options IPV6, linux Mozilla started returning immediately with connection refused for -every- connection attempt (including pop connections). It was suggested to set net.inet6.ip6.v6only = 0 but it did not make any difference. The refusals are for either ipv6 or ipv4 addresses, and it was said that this used to work. Communicator and other ipv4 programs work.
configure IPV6 and COMPAT_LINUX, and get linux Mozilla 1.0 - current.
Wild guess: Perhaps during the last KAME import it threw COMPAT_LINUX out of sync?
