Can't use ipv6 proxy with http request

Describe the problem/error/question

I’m trying to use an ipv6 proxy for http requests but it’s unable to connect. Did I write the format wrong?

What is the error message (if any)?

ERROR: The connection cannot be established, this usually occurs due to an incorrect host(domain) value

getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND [2a0a:6040:9718:14f::a]

hello @Ruriko

Remove the square brackets after the @ sign

I tried that and got a new a different error:

ERROR: The connection cannot be established, this usually occurs due to an incorrect host(domain) value

getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND 2a0a

I think by removing the brackets it uses incorrect address since the error log it just connecting with 2a0a

Hey @Ruriko,

I suspect you might be seeing this: Axios attempts to resolve IPv6 addresses as hostnames · Issue #5333 · axios/axios · GitHub I have created NODE-1175 as the internal dev ticket to see if we can work around this.
