How to set to listen to IPv6 as well?


After struggling for hours why Filebeat can't connect to ES, I realised that this setting in Elasticsearch.yaml is the culprit. It is only listening to IPv4 and not IPv6.

I tried many different ways to add ::/0 to it, but I can't restart ES successfully.
What is the right format to listen to and ::/0 please?


Just use _site_ and it will bind to all available interfaces.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm sorry I'm not following. According to this page, site is for site-local addresses.

Any site-local addresses on the system, for example .

I would like to bind to both IPv4 and IPv6. I don't think this is the right solution. Or do you mean I should use _site_ or something?

yes try _site_
