Ahhhh, OK, that problem again! And yes, I can see that with netstat
too, it is only listening on the v6 address.

No chunksize set. I have the v6 address configured that you get "for
free" with the v4 address, but nothing else.

Yup, that did it, thanks!

I see in the mailing list archives that there has been a few quite
heated discussions on the default for that sysctl, so I won't bring
that up again... :-)

But still, isn't this really an error in amanda? I mean it should not
assume that this automatic v6-v4 mappings happens on all systems that
support v6?

It would be nice if amanda could work out of the box on NetBSD.

Thanks again for the help,

P.S. Just checked on my Mac - it seems to have net.inet6.ip6.v6only=0
as a default.
