Isabel Drost commented on ZOOKEEPER-530:
----------------------------------------

Just found with man 7 ipv6:

NOTES
The sockaddr_in6 structure is bigger than the generic sockaddr.  Programs that 
assume that all address types can be stored safely in a struct sockaddr need to 
be changed to use struct sockaddr_storage for that instead.

> Memory corruption: Zookeeper c client IPv6 implementation does not honor 
> struct sockaddr_in6 size

> I tried to run zookeeper c-client on a machine with IPv6 enabled. When 
> connecting to the IPv6 address a connect(...) gave a "Address family not 
> supported by protocol" error. The reason was, that a few lines earlier, the 
> socket was opened with PF_INET instead of PF_INET6. Changing that the 
> following way:
> {code}
>            if (zh->addrs[zh->connect_index].sa_family == AF_INET) {
>               zh->fd = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
>             } else {
>               zh->fd = socket(PF_INET6, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
>             }
> {code}
> turned the error message into "Invalid argument". 
> When printing out sizeof(struct sockaddr), sizeof(struct sockaddr_in) and 
> sizeof(struct sockaddr_in6) I got sockaddr: 16, sockaddr_in: 16 and 
> sockaddr_in6: 28. 
> So in the code calling 
> {code}
>            connect(zh->fd, &zh->addrs[zh->connect_index], sizeof(struct 
> sockaddr_in));
> {code}
> the parameter address_len is too small.
> Same applies to how IPv6 addresses are handled in the function 
> getaddrs(zhandle_t *zh).
> (Big Thanks+kiss to Thilo Fromm for helping me debug this.)
