Subject: ip_compress_address double compresses IPv6 addresses

Hello,

 

When using ip_compress_address I ran into an issue with IPv6 addresses being double compressed.  An example would an address like 2001:0:0:1::1 gets compress to 2001::1::1 which is not a valid ipv6 address since there can only be one :: the proper address is 2001:0:0:1::1. 

 

I solved this by using ip_normalize before I compress.  This way I know the address is normalized/expanded first before compressed each time.

 

In order to continue with my development I made a patch and have attached it in this email.  However what is your suggested solution?

 

Here is some information on what I am running:

Data-Validate-IP-0.11

5.8.8

Linux 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5

 

 

Thanks,
Alan
