[Dxspider-support] IPV6 hangs

   Hello Mike,

 I have been running dual stack IPv6 for a while now, without incident.   I
do recall reading something about making sure I had a shorter timeout set,
so my IPv6 connects run a script like this:

timeout 15
abort (Busy|Sorry|Fail)
connect telnet {address} 7300
'login' 'wb3ffv-2'

Where {address} is the IPv6 address.    Speaking of IPv6, as I know not many
are running it yet, would you like to connect with each other??    Always
looking for additional IPv6 users to connect with here...

73's de WB3FFV

I have noticed an issue with IPV6 cluster connects. If the target node is
unavailable, the entire cluster hangs until the connect attempt times out. I
have had to disable IPv6 on my cluster to prevent the problem.
