Package: rat
Version: 4.2.21-1
Severity: important

RAT doesn't work with IPv6 addresses from out of the box. This migh be related
to the fact that libuclmmbase1 is compiled without IPv6 support (see, but it still
doesn't work after installing the library with IPv6 enabled.

How to test:

[zyk@Amok:/home/zyk] host -t AAAA  AAAA    2002:D5B1:9F5F:1:250:BAFF:FE13:8E14
[zyk@Amok:/home/zyk] rat    
Can't resolve IP address for No such file or
Usage: rat [options] -t <ttl> <addr>/<port>
[zyk@Amok:/home/zyk] rat ::1/5555
Can't resolve IP address for ::1: No such file or directory
