Description Alexander Lukyanov 2005-06-29 10:08:06 UTC
Description of problem:
mtr does not work with --address option, fails with a bogus error message

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'mtr --address a.b.c.d', where a.b.c.d is an IP address on local network
Actual results:
mtr: failed to bind to interface: Socket operation on non-socket

Expected results:
mtr should start emitting IP packets with the given address as source.

Additional info:
strace shows that mtr tries to bind file descriptor 0:
bind(0, {sa_family=AF_UNSPEC, sa_data="\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"}, 128) = -1
ENOTSOCK (Socket operation on non-socket)

Looking into it, something seems broken here...

Read ya, Phil

Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2005-09-05 15:11:54 UTC
OK, interface got set before the any sockets were opened. The latest development
version will have a fix.

Keep in mind though that the --address option is really limited to IPv4 ip
addresses at the moment.

Read ya, Phil

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2006-03-27 16:52:31 UTC
mtr-0.71-0.FC4.1 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
