Comment(by jdzst):

 Cygwin IPv6 might work in Windows Vista (but I don't have any)


 IPv6 support. New APIs getaddrinfo, getnameinfo, freeaddrinfo,
 gai_strerror, in6addr_any, in6addr_loopback. On IPv6-less systems,
 replacement functions are available for IPv4.
 On systems with IPv6 enabled, the underlying WinSock functions are used.
 While I tried hard to get the functionality as POSIXy as possible, keep in
 mind that a *fully* conformant implementation of getaddrinfo and other
 stuff is only available starting with Windows Vista/2008.
