Description Martin Schovanek 2005-09-21 14:46:55 UTC
[#20050911200, jdk1.4.2_09, RH Fedora Core 4]

Nb network communication is completely broken on 'RH Fedora Core 4' platform and
other Linuxes which are shipped with IPv6 enabled. Nb cannot connect to bundled
servers, Auto Update, etc.

In fact it is JDK1.4.2 problem on 'RH Fedora Core 4' platform, not a Nb issue.
However, we should relese note it since the jdk1.4.2_09 is supported platform
for Nb 5.0 and some users can encounter this problem. 

Workaround:
Run Nb with '-J-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true' parameter. Alternatively disable
IPv6 (/etc/modules.conf or /etc/modprobe.conf).

Comment 1 Lukasz Grela 2006-01-04 09:51:59 UTC
during connection with derby jdk 1.4 and RH Fedora Core 4 the error message is
showing up "Unable to connect, cannot establish a connection to
jdbc:derby://localhost:1527/sample using otg.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver
(java.security.PrivilegedActionException : Error openioning socket to server
localhost on port 1527 with message : null)"

workaround is working
