Working on it, but due to the scope I am actually attacking it on most

This is actually needed for IPv6, as most IPv6 stacks require separate
IPv4/IPv6 listen sockets. Some IPv6 stacks allow to accept IPv4
connections on IPv6 ports though.

It thus also needs to be updated with IPv6 addresses.

I'll have a look again at this and provide diffs to my current findings.
