What did you do?

I am trying to go get a module while I'm developing an app to fix my DNS issues, however go get is ignoring the hosts file entry I created to temporarily fix my git server's incorrect domain name. does not work because my git server git.sequentialread.com is not reachable from the sum.golang.org google SaaS server which is tightly integrated into the way the go get command works.

forest@thingpad:~$ nslookup git.sequentialread.com 8.8.8.8

forest@thingpad:~/Desktop/git/gandi-dns-updater$ go get git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite

What did you expect to see?

I expected the go get software do what I asked, go to my git server and download the module.

However, in the event that go get cannot do that for me, I expected the go get software to tell me in clear, human-readable terms why it cannot do that.

What did you see instead?

forest@thingpad:~/Desktop/git/gandi-dns-updater$ go get git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite

When I 1st saw this error, I was 100% convinced that it was an issue related to golang not parsing /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/nsswitch.conf or /etc/hosts correctly. I quickly realized that it only happened with go get, not with a normal http call to git.sequentialread.com, so I decided to investigate further. However, after following that red herring all day long, I finally got to the point where I had run out of things to check and I could not make sense of what I was seeing, according to delve go get WAS resolving the right IP address 71.34.5.123 not the wrong one 71.34.16.185. It was connecting to 71.34.5.123, not 71.34.16.185. But I was still seeing an error that says dial tcp 71.34.16.185:443: connect: connection refused

Eventually with dumb luck / trying anything after running out of options, I found the answer:

forest@thingpad:~$ curl https://sum.golang.org/lookup/git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite@v0.0.0-20220122212408-4941a7aa3dc0

The error message I was seeing was actually being thrown on google's server, not on my computer.

name resolution wild goose chase / red herring
Now I'm going to attempt to figure out WHY this happens.

First of all it looks like it might start here:

func repoRootForImportDynamic(importPath string, mod ModuleMode, security web.SecurityMode) (*RepoRoot, error) {
url, err := urlForImportPath(importPath)
if err != nil {
return nil, err
}
resp, err := web.Get(security, url)
if err != nil {
msg := "https fetch: %v"
if security == web.Insecure {
msg = "http/" + msg
}
return nil, fmt.Errorf(msg, err)
}

which goes

// Get returns the body of the HTTP or HTTPS resource specified at the given URL.
//
// If the URL does not include an explicit scheme, Get first tries "https".
// If the server does not respond under that scheme and the security mode is
// Insecure, Get then tries "http".
// The URL included in the response indicates which scheme was actually used,
// and it is a redacted URL suitable for use in error messages.
//
// For the "https" scheme only, credentials are attached using the
// cmd/go/internal/auth package. If the URL itself includes a username and
// password, it will not be attempted under the "http" scheme unless the
// security mode is Insecure.
//
// Get returns a non-nil error only if the request did not receive a response
// under any applicable scheme. (A non-2xx response does not cause an error.)
func Get(security SecurityMode, u *url.URL) (*Response, error) {
return get(security, u)
}

then

func get(security SecurityMode, url *urlpkg.URL) (*Response, error) {

then

if url.Scheme == "" || url.Scheme == "https" {
secure := new(urlpkg.URL)
*secure = *url
secure.Scheme = "https"
fetched, res, err = fetch(secure)

then

fetch := func(url *urlpkg.URL) (*urlpkg.URL, *http.Response, error) {
// Note: The -v build flag does not mean "print logging information",
// despite its historical misuse for this in GOPATH-based go get.
// We print extra logging in -x mode instead, which traces what
// commands are executed.
if cfg.BuildX {
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "# get %s\n", url.Redacted())
}
req, err := http.NewRequest("GET", url.String(), nil)
if err != nil {
return nil, nil, err
}
if url.Scheme == "https" {
auth.AddCredentials(req)
}
var res *http.Response
if security == Insecure && url.Scheme == "https" { // fail earlier
res, err = impatientInsecureHTTPClient.Do(req)
} else {
res, err = securityPreservingHTTPClient.Do(req)
}
return url, res, err
}

then it calls .Do(request) on the securityPreservingHTTPClient, i think ... ?

// securityPreservingHTTPClient is like the default HTTP client, but rejects
// redirects to plain-HTTP URLs if the original URL was secure.
var securityPreservingHTTPClient = &http.Client{
CheckRedirect: func(req *http.Request, via []*http.Request) error {
if len(via) > 0 && via[0].URL.Scheme == "https" && req.URL.Scheme != "https" {
lastHop := via[len(via)-1].URL
return fmt.Errorf("redirected from secure URL %s to insecure URL %s", lastHop, req.URL)
}
// Go's http.DefaultClient allows 10 redirects before returning an error.
// The securityPreservingHTTPClient also uses this default policy to avoid
// Go command hangs.
if len(via) >= 10 {
return errors.New("stopped after 10 redirects")
}
return nil
},
}

I'm assuming since the transport isn't specified on the securityPreservingHTTPClient, then it must be using the DefaultTransport...?

// DefaultTransport is the default implementation of Transport and is
// used by DefaultClient. It establishes network connections as needed
// and caches them for reuse by subsequent calls. It uses HTTP proxies
// as directed by the $HTTP_PROXY and $NO_PROXY (or $http_proxy and
// $no_proxy) environment variables.
var DefaultTransport RoundTripper = &Transport{
Proxy: ProxyFromEnvironment,
DialContext: (&net.Dialer{
Timeout: 30 * time.Second,
KeepAlive: 30 * time.Second,
}).DialContext,
ForceAttemptHTTP2: true,
MaxIdleConns: 100,
IdleConnTimeout: 90 * time.Second,
TLSHandshakeTimeout: 10 * time.Second,
ExpectContinueTimeout: 1 * time.Second,
}

At this point I have no idea why the bug is happening and I feel like I would have to learn how to run an interactive debugger against go get and run it against my own http.Get() code and find the difference that way.

delve attempt #5, poking at "C.getaddrinfo"

Conclusions I have drawn from my delve adventure:

  1. the nsswitch.conf file is being parsed:
> net.systemConf() /usr/local/go/src/net/conf.go:44 (PC: 0x74f7f0)
Values returned:

    39: )
    40:
    41: // systemConf returns the machine's network configuration.
    42: func systemConf() *conf {
    43:         confOnce.Do(initConfVal)
=>  44:         return confVal
    45: }
    46:
    47: func initConfVal() {
    48:         dnsMode, debugLevel := goDebugNetDNS()
    49:         confVal.dnsDebugLevel = debugLevel
...
(dlv) p confVal.nss.sources["hosts"]
[]net.nssSource len: 4, cap: 4, [
        {
                source: "files",
                criteria: []net.nssCriterion len: 0, cap: 0, nil,},
        {
                source: "mdns4_minimal",
                criteria: []net.nssCriterion len: 1, cap: 1, [
                        (*net.nssCriterion)(0xc0002a6840),
                ],},
        {
                source: "dns",
                criteria: []net.nssCriterion len: 0, cap: 0, nil,},
        {
                source: "mymachines",
                criteria: []net.nssCriterion len: 0, cap: 0, nil,},
]

For some reason, the unknownOpt flag was set on the dnsConfig struct:

(dlv) so
> net.(*Resolver).lookupIP() /usr/local/go/src/net/lookup_unix.go:95 (PC: 0x779e2e)
Values returned:
        ~r0: *net.conf {
                forceCgoLookupHost: false,
                netGo: false,
                netCgo: false,
                hasMDNSAllow: false,
                goos: "linux",
                dnsDebugLevel: 0,
                nss: *net.nssConf {
                        err: error nil,
                        sources: map[string][]net.nssSource [...],},
                resolv: *net.dnsConfig {
                        ...
                        unknownOpt: true,

This caused the following condition to fall through:

> net.(*conf).hostLookupOrder() /usr/local/go/src/net/conf.go:134 (PC: 0x74fecc)
   129:         }
   130:         fallbackOrder := hostLookupCgo
   131:         if c.netGo || r.preferGo() {
   132:                 fallbackOrder = hostLookupFilesDNS
   133:         }
=> 134:         if c.forceCgoLookupHost || c.resolv.unknownOpt || c.goos == "android" {
   135:                 return fallbackOrder
   136:         }
   137:         if bytealg.IndexByteString(hostname, '\\') != -1 || bytealg.IndexByteString(hostname, '%') != -1 {
   138:                 // Don't deal with special form hostnames with backslashes
   139:                 // or '%'.
(dlv) n
> net.(*conf).hostLookupOrder() /usr/local/go/src/net/conf.go:135 (PC: 0x750065)
   130:         fallbackOrder := hostLookupCgo
   131:         if c.netGo || r.preferGo() {
   132:                 fallbackOrder = hostLookupFilesDNS
   133:         }
   134:         if c.forceCgoLookupHost || c.resolv.unknownOpt || c.goos == "android" {
=> 135:                 return fallbackOrder
   136:         }
   137:         if bytealg.IndexByteString(hostname, '\\') != -1 || bytealg.IndexByteString(hostname, '%') != -1 {
   138:                 // Don't deal with special form hostnames with backslashes
   139:                 // or '%'.
   140:                 return fallbackOrder

unknownOpt has a comment that says // anything unknown was encountered

image

so I decided to figure out why unknownOpt was being set to true by putting a breakpoint on those conf.unknownOpt = true references I found.

But first, I decided to debug my sample

func main() {
	response, err := http.Get("https://git.sequentialread.com")
	log.Printf("%+v, %+v", response, err)
}

program and figure out what it was doing differently.

More on that later.

Finally, I got to the part where the go code stops and it calls libc or makes a syscall or whatever:

Where I can see the wrong (not from the hosts file) address 71,34,5,123 being returned from the C code.

                     response, it indicates that the data in the
                     response was verified according to the DNSSEC
                     protocol.  In order to rely on the AD bit, the
                     local system has to trust both the DNSSEC-
                     validating resolver and the network path to it,
                     which is why an explicit opt-in is required.  If
                     the trust-ad option is active, the stub resolver
                     sets the AD bit in outgoing DNS queries (to enable
                     AD bit support), and preserves the AD bit in
                     responses.  Without this option, the AD bit is not
                     set in queries, and it is always removed from
                     responses before they are returned to the
                     application.  This means that applications can
                     trust the AD bit in responses if the trust-ad
                     option has been set correctly.

                     In glibc version 2.30 and earlier, the AD is not
                     set automatically in queries, and is passed through
                     unchanged to applications in responses.

name resolution wild goose chase / red herring
Ok. So it sounds like this is happening because go does not support these `resolv.conf` options, so it's throwing up its hands and falling back to something which doesn't work... ? is that right ?

But that doesn't explain why example app with http.Get works fine. So now I will work on figuring out the difference

Wait hang on i got confused, hold the phone,

71,34,5,123 IS the right address from /etc/hosts, and thats what the name lookup appears to be returning,

but i'm still seeing https fetch: Get "https://git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite?go-get=1": dial tcp 71.34.16.185:443: connect: connection refused error log at the end of the very same debug session

OK, so whatever I was looking at before appears to not be related to the actual problem.

however if i change my breakpoint condition to conn.conn.fd.raddr.IP[3] == 123 then the breakpoint does hit before it crashes.

So where the hell is it getting 71.34.16.185 from ???

OMFG its happening because of a google service that is trying to connect to my git server . The error I am seeing is being thrown on the google telemetry server.

forest@thingpad:~$ curl https://sum.golang.org/lookup/git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite@v0.0.0-20220122212408-4941a7aa3dc0

not found: git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite@v0.0.0-20220122212408-4941a7aa3dc0: unrecognized import path "git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite": https fetch: Get "https://git.sequentialread.com/forest/config-lite?go-get=1": dial tcp 71.34.16.185:443: connect: connection refused

See the explanation at https://sum.golang.org

The google telemetry built into the go get command is whats breaking it, its preventing it from functioning.

OK, to summarize:

  1. The design of the go get command is built around google SaaS
  2. The go get command / SaaS is designed to force go users to have their packages reachable on the public internet 100% of the time
    • It implements this by simply crashing when the package is not globally reachable.
    • It also does this when we are trying to pull a package in order to make a build in order to fix something so that our packages can be globally reachable on the internet again 😮‍💨 🤦
  3. The error message that users see when the package is reachable locally, but not reachable from google's SaaS is exceedingly cryptic
    • The text which describes whats happening, server response, is not nearly specific or notice-able enough to be understood by a human user encountering this error for the first time.
    • There is no instructions on how to fix it or work around it.

The work around is written here https://medium.com/mabar/today-i-learned-fix-go-get-private-repository-return-error-reading-sum-golang-org-lookup-93058a058dd8

export GONOSUMDB='*'
export GONOPROXY='*'

The error message should explain this workaround.

Also yall should probably not make tools that run on our work stations (like go get) depend 100% on google servers by default. Its very disrespectful IMO.

See https://go.dev/ref/mod#private-module-proxy-direct
The defaults are there so we can ensure software supply chain security across the ecosystem for most dependencies (which are public).
