[smokeping-users] IPv6 and Slaves

We have just implemented IPv6 on one of our backbone connections.  I was 
able to setup IPv6 polling using fping6 on my master server, which is 
the only server connected to the IPv6 backbone.  My other 2 slaves are 
on different backbone connections and do not have IPv6 access.  When i 
put in the fping6 probe, one my slaves will no longer start up.  This is 
the error i get:

Sent data to Server and got new config in response.
ERROR: fping ('/usr/local/sbin/fping6 -C 1 ::1') could not be run: ::1 
address not found
  at (eval 30) line 1

fping6 exists in that location, and i'm not using any of the slaves to 
do the IPv6 polling.  My other slave server starts up just fine and it 
doesn't have an IPv6 connections as well.  Any suggestions?
