RFC 6458, "Sockets API Extensions for the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)", December 2011

Source of RFC: tsvwg (tsv)

Errata ID: 4921

Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Section 9.1 says:

If sd is an IPv4 socket, the addresses passed must be IPv4 addresses.
If the sd is an IPv6 socket, the addresses passed can either be IPv4
or IPv6 addresses.

It should say:

If sd is an IPv4 socket, the passed addresses must be IPv4 addresses.
If sd is an IPv6 socket, the passed addresses must be IPv6 addresses.
Use IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses to bind an IPv6 socket to an IPv4
address. Note that some implementations optionally allow IPv4 addresses
to be passed in directly.
