Configure Amanda over IPv6

This article is for Amanda Enterprise (AE)

Amanda is IPv6 compatible. To use IPv6 addresses, we need to make changes to the xinetd or inetd amanda service entry.

xinetd configuration

Example: xinetd entry for amandad that will accept connections from IPv4 as well as IPv6 addresses.

service amanda {
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
flags = ipv6
wait = no
user = amandabackup
group = disk
groups = yes
server = /usr/local/libexec/amandad
server_args = -auth=bsdtcp amdump amindexd amidxtaped
}

xinetd configuration

Example: inetd entry for amandad that will accept connections from IPv4 as well as IPv6 addressess.
