Description mab 2012-07-10 05:31:46 UTC
Description of Problem:
UdpClient's Receive() function throws ArgumentException when using IPv6 endpoints.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

UdpClient udpClient = new UdpClient(PORT, AddressFamily.InterNetworkV6);
IPEndPoint remoteEP = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.IPv6Any, 0);
byte[] receive_byte_array;
receive_byte_array = udpClient.Receive(ref remoteEP);

Send data to an IPv6 endpoint, which sends data back.

Actual Results:
System.ArgumentException: The IPEndPoint was created using InterNetwork AddressFamily but SocketAddress contains InterNetworkV6 instead, please use the same type.
  at System.Net.IPEndPoint.Create (System.Net.SocketAddress socketAddress) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.ReceiveFrom_nochecks_exc (System.Byte[] buf, Int32 offset, Int32 size, SocketFlags flags, System.Net.EndPoint& remote_end, Boolean throwOnError, System.Int32& error) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.ReceiveFrom_nochecks (System.Byte[] buf, Int32 offset, Int32 size, SocketFlags flags, System.Net.EndPoint& remote_end) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.ReceiveFrom (System.Byte[] buffer, System.Net.EndPoint& remoteEP) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at System.Net.Sockets.UdpClient.Receive (System.Net.IPEndPoint& remoteEP) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 

Expected Results:
Should receive data.

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:

Can be fixed by replacing:

EndPoint endPoint = new IPEndPoint (IPAddress.Any, 0);


EndPoint endPoint;
if (remoteEP.AddressFamily == AddressFamily.InterNetwork) {
  endPoint = new IPEndPoint (IPAddress.Any, 0);
} else {
  endPoint = new IPEndPoint (IPAddress.IPv6Any, 0);

Please provide a complete test case, I don't see how exactly to build one of your explanation that will match what you're experiencing.

What do you need for this bug? Also, what is missing from the description that does not help reproduce this? I've filed https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=36315 which might be a duplicate.

The code in the description is more than adequate to reproduce the problem. Failing that, try using DnDns (available in a few locations; ours is here: https://github.com/nachocove/DnDns) on a IPv6-only network to do DNS lookups. I suspect it would be much easier to just use the code in the description, though. Some knowledge of networking is required.

Hey Marcos,

Could you take a look at this one?
