 +====IPv6 Support====
 +As of 7/29/2002 EPIC fully supports IPv6 in server descriptions,​ server
 +connections,​ $[[connect function|connect]](),​ $[[listen]](),​ /[[DCC]]
 +[[dcc GET|GET]], Virtual Hostnames, $[[iptoname]]().
 +====Server descriptions:​====
 +Surround the ipv6 p-addr with square brackets: \\ /[[server]] [1:​2::​3]:​...
 +====Server connections:​====
 +You can now connect to servers via IPv6!
 +====Changed functions:​====
 +$[[connect function|connect]](<​host>​ <​port>​ <​family>​) \\ where <​family>​
 +is "​4",​ "​6",​ "​v4"​ or "​v6"​ and <​family>​ is optional.
 +$[[listen]](<​port>​ <​family>​) \\ where <​family>​ is "​4",​ "​6",​ "​v4"​ or "​v6"​
 +and <​family>​ is optional.
 +$[[iptoname]](<​p-addr>​) \\ Both IPv4 and IPv6 "​p-addrs"​ (ie, A.B.C.D or
 +A::B:C) are now supported.
 +====Virtual Hostnames:​====
 +If the hostname that you choose as your virtual hostname has an IPv6
 +address, then that IPv6 address will be used as your virtual host if 
 +you connect to a server via IPv6.
 +/[[DCC]] [[dcc GET|GET]] \\ If you receive a DCC SEND handshake from someone
 +else and it uses an IPv6 hostname, you will be able to /DCC GET that file.
 +This is forward compatability. Nobody can do /DCC SEND via IPv6 yet.
