port 5000 and 23 are unreachable

    While trying to connect to FICS,  i become the error message:
    error logging in:
    port 5000: Network is unreachable
    port  23: Network is unreachable

    This is strange, because o can connect to the server with eboard and xboard. So the ports are not closed I guess.

    I deleted Jin and ~/.Jin and started a new download of Jin. But the problem persists.

    Any idea to explain this behavior?

    Many thanks!!

    PS: I'm using  Debian 5.0.3 (lenny)

    Hi matmunkh,

    I have the same issue and I'm using testing. Moreover and interestingly I can't connect with another java interface (sancho) to mldonkey (a p2p program).
    Maybe some java-network package that has been updated recently?

    If anyone knows something …

    Asking on debian-user-spanish list they point me to the solution.
    As root execute:
    sed -i 's/net.ipv6.bindv6only\ =\ 1/net.ipv6.bindv6only\ =\ 0/' \/etc/sysctl.d/bindv6only.conf \
    && invoke-rc.d procps restart

    If this doesn't work try manually to edit /etc/sysctl.d/bindv6only.conf and change the value of net.ipv6.bindv6only, 1 for 0 and restart.

    Hope this helps!
