Hi Gaurav,

JCIFS does not support IPv6 and there have been no changes to that end.

The code changes required would not be terribly hard. I believe
there's only a little bit of code that looks at dots and such. The
problem is creating a suitable IPv6 environment in which to test.

And this would be a feature for the now legendary JCIFS 2.0.
