Hi I had installed miniupnpd 1.9 and running with ipv4 and ipv6 enabled network in one of the linux pc and able to run the miniupnpd and can also see in upnp inspector running in another linux pc.

But same thing when I had tried with disabling Ipv4 and only enabling ipv6 network in linux pc and trying to run the miniupnpd it is throwing the error as follows

"miniupnpd -d -f /home/kasiviswanathan/dump/miniupnpd-1.9.20141209/miniupnpd.conf -u f950f16b-3c82-4c74-8a68-a76510e15518
Error parsing address/mask (or interface name) : eth0
can't parse "eth0" as a valid interface name"

Please any one can say why the miniupnpd is giving above error.

Thanks in advance

I think it is because eth0 has no IPv4 address : the getifaddr() function is failing, so parselanaddr() returns an error.

miniupnpd would need to ne modified to support network interface without any IPv4 address.

see if that patch fixes the problem : https://github.com/miniupnp/miniupnp/commit/eb72ab5330a8001fe4bbde18639b173b001aa906

But I think there are many places in the code that imply LAN interfaces have IPv4 addresses assigned
