|Title||Windows agent: fix endianness of IP addresses|
|Check_MK Edition||Check_MK Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Level||1 - Trivial Change|
|Compatibility||Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required|
The string conversion of IP addresses was falsely done manually in
network byte order, resulting in incorrect ouput for IPv6 addresses.
Now the conversion is done correctly.
This fix will shortly break the compatibility of logwatch state files
stored by the mk_logwatch plugin of previous versions of the Windows
agent as they use the remote IP address(es) of the monitoring host(s).
When upgrading to the new agent, those log entries that are created
exactly after stopping the old agent but before starting the new agent
will be lost in monitoring. After starting the new agent, monitoring
should work as before.
