    Default metasploit3: Address family not supported by protocol

    hey there. i have searched the entire forum threads and google and have yet to solve this problem in backtrack3.

    this problem happens when i start metasploit msf3web under backtrack:

    Booting WEBrick
    Rails 2.3.2 application starting on [127.0.0.1:55555]Remote Exploit Forums - Home of BackTrack[/url]
    Initializing the Metasploit Framework...
    (eval):61: warning: parenthesize argument(s) for future version
    Initialized the Metasploit Framework
    Call with -d to detach
    Ctrl-C to shutdown server
    [2009-07-21 13:32:49] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1
    [2009-07-21 13:32:49] INFO ruby 1.8.6 (2007-06-07) [i486-linux]
    [2009-07-21 13:32:49] WARN TCPServer Error: Address family not supported by protocol - socket(2)
    [2009-07-21 13:32:49] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=3327 port=55555


    it was suggested by someone that this is a kernel ipv4 & ipv6 issue, but i have failed fixing it. also some forum thread suggested i try using netstat to see if tcpserver is still listening in a subsocket and kill it.

    i'm using backtrack3 final installed to my hard disk.
    please help!

    Default

    So what happens when you try and connect to "hxxp://127.0.0.1:55555" in your web browser?
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Default i get the metasploit framework3

    up and running.. but when i try to exploit a local non patched server it fails..it's faking..

    but when i run metasploit 3 under a shell the error is not shown and is not faking when i try to exploit a local xp machine.
