IPv6 in irssi

irssi is a fantastic console client for connecting to IRC which I use on a daily basis. However, it defaults to connecting via IPv4, even for dual-stack servers. Fortunately you can solve this by running the following command within irssi:

/SET resolve_prefer_ipv6 = ON

Now I can continue my experiment of trying to run all clients on IPv6, ready for the day when IPv4 is finally retired.
