      Description

      Minecraft does not use or event try to connect to IPv6 servers, even if there is a correct and working AAAA record. According to Java documentation this is a default behaviour which can be changed through java.net.preferIPv6Addresses system property. It's a bad setting for the future to continue using IPv4 when IPv6 is available. Minecraft should prefer IPv6 wherever possible.
