    From Michiel van der Vlist@2:280/5555 to Binkd team on Sun Nov 5 19:54:26 2023
    Hello Binkd Team,

    I would like to see the following.

    On an incoming call binkd reports:

    - 10 May 14:46:36 [756] incoming from 2001:16d8:ff00:306::2 (3499)

    What I would like to see is this:

    - 10 May 14:46:36 [756] incoming from 2001:16d8:ff00:306::2 (3499) to 2001:7b8:2ff:3a9::2

    Where 2001:7b8:2ff:3a9::2 is one of my own IP addresses, the address that caller used to contact my binkd server.


    Reason:

    My binkd server is "multi homed". It can be reached via two different ways. Via my SixXs tunnel and via my he.net tunnel. In order to judge how effective this "multi homing" is, I would like to see via which channel an incoming call comes in.

    Tnx.

    P.S.

    I wrote this in 2016. SixXs is gone and I no longer use a he.net tunnel. I had native IPv6 from the cable company. Since about two month however I also have FTTH. I kept my cable connection for the time being. In the foreseeable future I will make a choice but for now I am mulltihomed...


    Cheers, Michiel

    A Perl hook might work. Something like:

    sub on_handshake
    {
    Log(3,"incoming to $our_ip $our_port");
    }


    or modify the "incoming" log message in the on_log() hook

    It shows outgoing too. Had to remove "incoming" :)

    }

    Hmmm... I have neve used Perl, so I would have to delve ionto that to follow your suggestion. I am not all that eager to do that, I'd prefer a solution that makes it an integral part of binkd. I remember someone posting the code to do this some five years ago when I first brought it up, but I can't find it any more... :(

    That may be useful too. For someone who has no control over what IP is used on outgoing. Which brings uop something else. The limitations of the bindaddr keyword....

    See following messages.
