mailchuck 231219a193 Improved logging
Fixes #118

- changed almost all "print" into logger
- threads have nicer names
- logger can have configuration in "logger.dat" in the same directory as
"keys.dat", and the logger will pick the one named "default" to replace
the "console" and "file" that are in PyBitmessage otherwise

Example file for logging to syslog:

keys = root,syslog



keys = syslog

class = handlers.SysLogHandler
formatter = syslog
level = DEBUG
args=(('localhost', handlers.SYSLOG_UDP_PORT),

keys = syslog

format=%(asctime)s %(threadName)s %(filename)s@%(lineno)d %(message)s
datefmt=%b %d %H:%M:%S

Neil Roberts 7da6ea958f Add support for IPv6
It will now listen on an IPv6 socket if possible or fall back to IPv4
if that doesn't work. It will no longer filter out all IPv6 addresses
and instead it will only filter out those that point to the local

It looks like the DNS bootstrapping should just automatically work
because getaddrinfo already returns IPv6 addresses from the AAAA

In order to convert from the ASCII representation of IPv6 addresses
and back we need inet_ntop and inet_pton. Python 2 doesn't currently
provide these for Windows so instead this patch provides a hot patch
to the socket module which wraps WSAStringToAddress and
WSAAddressToString using ctypes.

Neil Roberts 03263156de Add a 'trustedpeer' option to keys.dat
If this option is specified in keys.dat then Bitmessage will connect
to the host specified there instead of connecting to the hosts in the
list of known nodes. It will also stop listening for incoming
connections and the timing attack mitigation will be disabled.

The expected use case is for example where a user is running a daemon
on a dedicated machine in their local network and they occasionally
want to check for messages using a second instance of the client on
their laptop. In that case it would be much faster to catch up with
the messages by directly downloading from the dedicated machine over
the LAN. There is no need to connect to multiple peers or to do the
timing attack mitigation because the daemon is trusted.

The host is specified as hostname:port. Eg, ‘’.
