Hi Madhur,

Sorry but IPv6 is not a high priority. JCIFS is an IntrAnet tool so
it's just not that common to see IPv6 on an IntrAnet. IPv6 hasn't even
caught on on the IntErnet yet. So it's just not high on the list of
things TODO. It's definitely a "2.0" sort of feature. And
unfortunately it's not a trivial modification. I think there is some
code that thinks addresses are dot-quat notation.
