I think I'm also a member of this workgroup, though I am not
working at University of Jena, but studying there.

I have a first quick and dirty patch, replacing AF_INET by AF_INET6,
the sockaddr_in structs and so on.
I think it is broken, the calculation of net1 and net2 in
btl_tcp_proc.c isn't really ported and to be honest: I don't
understand the details, i.e. do I have to port name lookups,
are there high level structures relying on IPv4 structs
and so on.
At least it compiles ;) (let's ship it)
I don't know if this patched tcp-component can handle
IPv6 connections, I've never tested it. I think it
even breaks IPv4 functionality; we should make clear
how IPv4 and IPv6 may work in parallel (or may not, if
one considers IPv4 deprecated ;)
You can retrieve the patch here:
I'd also appreciate any suggestions, hints or even success stories ;)
