NAME

       CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP6 - IPv6 address to bind DNS resolves to

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP6, char *address);

DESCRIPTION

       Set  the  local  IPv6  address that the resolver should bind to. The argument should be of
       type char * and contain a single IPv6 address as a string.  Set this option to NULL to use
       the default setting (don't bind to a specific IP address).

       The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

DEFAULT

       NULL

PROTOCOLS

       All

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/foo.bin");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP6, "fe80::a9ff:fe46:b619");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       This  option  requires  that  libcurl was built with a resolver backend that supports this
       operation. The c-ares backend is the only such one.

       Added in 7.33.0

RETURN VALUE

       Returns  CURLE_OK   if   the   option   is   supported,   CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION   if   not,
       CURLE_NOT_BUILT_IN if support was disabled at compile-time, or CURLE_BAD_FUNCTION_ARGUMENT
       when given a bad address.
