[Libwebsockets] Errors with test-client

I’m trying to incorporate libwebsocket into an OpenWRT build, I’ve got the package compiling using the OpenWRT Makefile that was provided in the Github repo, but I’m getting an error when I try to use the test-client.

[412138:7866] ERR: getaddrinfo: Name or service not known
libwebsocket connect failed

I’ve seen that this might have had something to do with IPV6 support being added so I tried adding the CMAKE_OPTION to the build file.


But when I run my test-client I see the following message

[412137:6138] NOTICE: Library version: 1.3 unknown-build-hash
[412137:6142] NOTICE: IPV6 compiled in and enabled

Which seems to indicate that IPV6 is compiled in.  Any ideas?  I’ve deleted the package to force a recompile so I know it’s building, but I see this during the compile which makes me wonder if it’s ignoring my directive.

Any help would be appreciated.
