wheelerlaw added a comment to T3065: dirmngr: proxy issues with dnslookup causing failure.

Also might I add, this used to work perfectly fine in gnupg14. It seems that somewhere along the line a regression was introduced that is causing this erroneous non-compliant behavior in the HTTP client.

wheelerlaw added a comment to T3065: dirmngr: proxy issues with dnslookup causing failure.

Why? Your explanation is invalid because it implicates dirmngr's HTTP client as not comforming to the spec laid out by the RFC. I've quite clearly explained--and backed up with the spec itself--that when a proxy variable is configured, a client should not be doing DNS lookup of the destination hostname. Is there something about that you are not understanding?

Please show an example regarding something else than a failed access to a pool of keyservers. I explained why it can't work for pools for you.

wheelerlaw reopened T3065: dirmngr: proxy issues with dnslookup causing failure as "Open".

Yes you can, and no you do not. Don't believe me? Then read the spec. At no point does the spec say that there is "nothing that can be done" when a hostname cannot be resolved when connecting through a proxy. In fact, it states precisely the opposite, describing the exact procedure a client should take when making a request through a proxy. See section 5.3, paragraph 3:

So, the keyserver operator had thrown in a hockeypuck server in the pool, causing this.. While the keyserver remains in the exclude list until confirmation it has been resolved, that explains the behavior and it has been made clear that separate software needs to use different names in the future.

werner added a comment to T3065: dirmngr: proxy issues with dnslookup causing failure.

If you specify a pool of keyservers dirmngr selects a keyserver on its won from the pool. This is so that it can use its own heuristics to detect whether a keyserver is dead and then retry another one. Now the default is a pool and your specified keyserver.ubuntu.com is also a pool (of two servers). So if your DNS resolver does not tell us the IP addresses, we can't do anything about it.

werner added a comment to T4182: Dirmngr: Keeps files in homedir open on Windows.

The dirmngr may at any time open a file in that directory and thus there is no reliable way to remove the home directory when any gpg tool is running. Daemons need to be stopped before a directory can be deleted. So I think this is a non-issue and brought to the table only because we have that kludge of detecting a n unlinked directory on Unix. But even on Unix this is not possible to get rid of the home directory, for example if you want to umount it.

it is not due to windows but due to the use of NTBTLS. I have the same problem here... and found it: We call es_fflush to let ntbtls flush its internal buffers but libgpg-error's estream module does no propagate this explicit flush to the cookie functions of ntbtls. Thus ntbtls gets stuck most of the time. I am not sure when this regression happened but it is pretty obvious.

I have logging to a socket always enabled. That may explain why I don't see that error on Unix.

gniibe changed the status of T2348: Improve detection of IPv6 and IPv4 availibility from Open to Testing.

I manually configure IPv6 only environment, and now (forthcoming 2.2.9), it works fine for me.
So, I move this state to Testing.
