see list-archive if it exits ;-)

It was IPv4 address but host is IPv6 ready, too.

I like when my client programs (for example telnet) are trying all
addresses with belongs to specified host:
[misiek@linstar misiek]$ LANG=C telnet linstar.zsz2.starachowice.pl 9999
Trying 3ffe:902:12::10.9999...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
but this is less important thing than portability...

on my system (linux && glibc) functions getipnodeby{name,addr}
are'n implemented yet ... ;)
