Amanda works with IPv6. It will be available in the next release (post-2.5.1). To use IPv6 addresses, make changes to the xinetd or inetd amanda service entry.

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
}

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

amanda stream tcp46 nowait amandabackup /usr/local/libexec/amandad amandad
