4864: rbt setup-repo fails due to IPv6 ServerAddress returned in p4 info


What version are you running?


What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. connect to perforce using ipv4 address
  2. setup Repository on ReviewBoard using ipv4 address
  3. rbt login
  4. rbt setup-repo

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

expected that rbt setup-repo finds the ReviewBoard repo via the p4 connection address and creates ".reviewboardrc"

What operating system are you using?


Attach the debug out from the command.

<#PerforceServer IPV6 Address#> is the perforce server returning IPV6 address even thoug P4PORT connects via an IPV4 address, the mismatch casues rbt setup-repo to fail. In order to fix this I modified the python scripts to additionally lok for the address in P4PORT returned by the command "p4 set"
The modified python scripts are attached in my

search for p4setpath in the supplied .egg, I hacked on a seperate variable to carry the P4PORT address - which is obviously not the correct way to implement this as it touches an object common to all repos but it proves the concept / fix of using P4PORT instead of / as well as "p4 info" "Server address".
