Why? listen on localhost??? ( please elaborate that configuration decission )

FWIW??? I haven't been able to figure out what the use case is.



<David McGinniss Wrote> The use case is that I am testing Phones for Sprint 
where we need to test a specific node when it is first placed in service or has 
had new SW or has been adversely impacting customer calls. Because there are 
multiple elements that perform the same function where the phone has a FQDN  of 
say compgw.vowifi2.spcsdns.net where the device may receive many ipaddress's  
from the dns query. In this use case the phone is attaching to a WiFi access 
point. The Router on the LAN is running DNSMASQ.  I use the "address=/ 
compgw.vowifi2.spcsdns.net /XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX" to set the IP address to that of 
the target Serving Gateway I wish to test. The problem is that the phones being 
IPv6 capable will make an A record query over IPv6 transport and the address I 
set is not used.



I cannot figure out short of disabling IPv6 altogether how to get the AP/router 
which is the DNS server for the attached phones to serve the address I set if 
the query is received over IPv6.



Do you or anyone have a solution without disabling IPv6 on the router?
