Good question. I assumed if you removed the IPv6 local address that a local IPv6 wouldn't work, and that you need to specify an IPv6 remote host to have it be accepted. Yes, it is still listening on Ipv6, but no one can get in except localhost by default, so I don't see the issue. > I think I was the one who talked us into assuming that ipv4 and ipv6 > should be treated as a single protocol.
