AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'inet_pton'


python 2.7.3 web.py 0.35

Any Updates for the issues?

I also met the problem.

inet_pton has not been implemented in python on windows.
See http://bugs.python.org/issue7171 for more information.

Windows recently (months) added support for inet_pton.
Slated for inclusion in Python 3.4, no mention of backport.

I commented 'Matt Boswell's code to check for ipv6 first' portion in net.py (\python27\lib\site-packages\web\net.py) to avoid this issue.

In python 2.7-python3.3 , socket.py does not have 'inet_pton', so, you can change the code like this:

\lib\site-packages\web\net.py about line:33

def validip6addr(address):
    Returns True if `address` is a valid IPv6 address.

        >>> validip6addr('::')
        >>> validip6addr('aaaa:bbbb:cccc:dddd::1')
        >>> validip6addr('1:2:3:4:5:6:7:8:9:10')
        >>> validip6addr('12:10')

    return False

let it return False. and dont support Add IPv6 support

Perhaps a try/except is more appropriate.

line 32 to line 35, do change like this:

        socket.inet_pton(socket.AF_INET6, address)
        return False

@microacup you should make a new commit and add this.
