Unknown error connecting with elasticsearch when using ipv6


#1

Hi, I'm using kibana 6.0 version. I'm using kibana with reverse proxy to convert ipv6 queries to ipv4. Hence kibana and elasticsearch are in localhost (127.0.0.1) but clients can reach kibana using IPv6 queries.

I've tried to remove the reverse proxy and use purely ipv6 but I still have issues.

It seems that kibana is able to display the dashboards (hence it can display the data for the .kibana elasticsearch index) but when I tried to get data from any other index, it displays "Error: unknown error" messages.

When I try to query kibana using IPv4 only, I can get all info fine.

Can somebody suggest something here? Thanks in advance.

I'll provide a picture of the errors and the kibana logs for it in the following posts.

This is the kibana error:

and this is the logs I get from kibana:

No error is displayed in elasticsearch.
