Subject Re: Thrift socket behaves different in C and PHP
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2011 22:11:32 GMT
Hi all,

I solve this problem, but I am sure about the root cause...

The problem seems to be getaddrinfo doesn't return correct info.
As the following codes indicates, I remove AI_ADDRCONFIG in ai_flags.
C++ clients is then able to connect to php server.

  hints.ai_family = PF_UNSPEC;
  hints.ai_socktype = SOCK_STREAM;
  //hints.ai_flags = AI_PASSIVE | AI_ADDRCONFIG;
  hints.ai_flags = AI_PASSIVE;
  sprintf(port, "%d", port_);

  error = getaddrinfo(host_.c_str(), port, &hints, &res0);

The man page said:

       If hints.ai_flags includes the AI_ADDRCONFIG flag, then IPv4
addresses are returned in the list pointed to by res only if the local
system has
       at least one IPv4 address configured, and IPv6 addresses are only
returned if the local system has at least one IPv6 address configured.

However, my system got both IPv4 and IPv6 address.
This should not be a problem....

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:13:d4:e4:65:ed
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::213:d4ff:fee4:65ed/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:821282 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:958548 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:122517133 (122.5 MB)  TX bytes:253954816 (253.9 MB)
          Interrupt:17 Base address:0xe000

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:75224 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:75224 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:23526262 (23.5 MB)  TX bytes:23526262 (23.5 MB)

Anyway, the problem solved.
It would be fantastic if I could know the root cause.
