unable to open socket for inet6


That is one of the messages I get when trying to access the internet from my slackware box.

The error messages says (to lazy to copy of the other screen, cutting it down a bit):

1. "unable to open socket for inet6"
2. "Transport failed for inet6"
3. "failed to open listener for inet6"

How do I solve this? I havn't got a clue cuz' I'm not exactlly a wizard on networking...

You have probably enabled version 6 of TCP/IP - this is the next big thing that might happen to the net very soon, but for now there are not that many IPv6 compliant nodes and networks around the *net yet.
P.S. A little correction there are many IPv6 compliant net/nodes, but not that many are implemented and deployed yet.
