 Dear all !

I am currently developping an application using sockets to communicate
over an IPv6 network.

However I am unable to retrieve the ipv6 address of the WiFi interface

My code works only for IPv4 :(

Is there anyway to adapt this code to retrieve only IPv6 address
(global) of the wifi interface?

Many thanks in advance,

I am using following code:

private String getLocalIpAddress() {
        try {
            for (Enumeration<NetworkInterface> en =
NetworkInterface.getNetworkInterfaces(); en.hasMoreElements();) {
                NetworkInterface intf = en.nextElement();
                for (Enumeration<InetAddress> enumIpAddr =
intf.getInetAddresses(); enumIpAddr.hasMoreElements();) {
                    InetAddress inetAddress =
                    if (!inetAddress.isLoopbackAddress()) { return
inetAddress.getHostAddress().toString(); }
        } catch (SocketException ex) {
            Log.e("ServerActivity", ex.toString());
        return null;

1. Please assist

Would someone please explain *how* I can link the documentation and sample
code that *was* downloaded and *is* present in the 'program files\android'
folder into Eclipse.

After all the word is *convenience* when it comes to an IDE is it not. What
is the point bowing to compromise?

2. Android Market Dev Console Statistics

The new dev console stats tell me that 11.5% of my users are still on
Android 1.5.

That figure is more then double the average.  I'm not suggesting the
stat is wrong, my app is 18 months old, so I suspect there are a few
dead phones with it still installed (or do dead phones get removed
from the stats?).

Anyone else have some unusual stats?
