I have two scripts for sending out UDP packets to IPv4 and IPv6 sockets, using IO::Socket::INET and INET6 respectively.

IPv4 Client

use IO::Socket; use Socket; my $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new( Proto => 'udp', ) or die "Could not create socket: $!\n"; my $pack = pack_sockaddr_in(23456, inet_aton('')); IO::Socket::send($sock, "message", 0, $pack) or die "Can't send: $!\n" +; print $sock->sockhost(),"\n"; print $sock->sockport(),"\n"; print $sock->peerhost(),"\n"; print $sock->peerport(),"\n";

IPv6 Client

use IO::Socket::INET6; use Socket; use Socket6; my $sock = IO::Socket::INET6->new( Proto => 'udp', ) or die "Could not create socket: $!\n"; my $pack = pack_sockaddr_in6(23456, inet_pton(AF_INET6,'2000:1234:5678 +:9abc::eeff')); IO::Socket::send($sock, "message", 0, $pack) or die "Can't send: $!\n" +; print $sock->sockhost(),"\n"; print $sock->sockport(),"\n"; print $sock->peerhost(),"\n"; print $sock->peerport(),"\n";

IPv4 Output 32807 23456

IPv6 Output

:: -4622771466457284569 2000:1234:5678:9abc::eeff -4622771466457293920


I can't figure out why INET6 sockets are printing such weird values for the port numbers, even though I'm using the same 23456 in both cases.
