Unbound: Can't assign requested address for fe80...

  • Just a quick question about Unbound, which I think I first noticed in 2.4.4-p3, but now 2.4.5 as well: the service stops after a reboot if I have 'LAN IPv6 Link Local' selected in 'Network Interfaces' under Services -> DNS Resolver -> General Settings:

    rc.bootup: The command '/usr/local/sbin/unbound -c /var/unbound/unbound.conf' returned exit code '1', the output was '[1585276337] unbound[75751:0] error: can't bind socket: Can't assign requested address for fe80::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx port 53 [1585276337] unbound[75751:0] fatal error: could not open ports'

    Is it normal for Unbound to dislike such a configuration? Deselecting 'LAN IPv6 Link Local' resolves the problem.
