Hi Pascal,

The JVM parameter you cite is manipulating the underlying socket
behavior and so the error you're seeing is not really related to JCIFS

It's not crystal clear what you are trying to do but if you're trying
to get JCIFS to actually use an IPv6 address, it will absolutely not
work because JCIFS simply does not support IPv6 right now. And for a
variety of reasons it's not very high on the TODO list.
