Help Needed Regarding Opening IPv6 Socket on Red Hat Enterprise Linux using TCL 8.4

One of my script needs to open an IPv6 Socket on Linux Machine using TCL. But it fails to open an IPv6 Socket with the error couldn't open socket: host is unreachable. But the IPv6 address Im using is of the same machine and ping6 passes to this address. Could anyone please let me know is there any special package that needs to be installed to create IPv6 Socket on Linux via TCL. The version of TCL installed on my machine is 8.4


[rootbeer@lnx1 ~/tcp_listener]$ tclsh

% socket 2002:200::230:48ff:fe5e:bcd0 1470

couldn't open socket: host is unreachable

Based on 8.5 roadmap (http://wiki.tcl.tk/12753) ipv6 not implemented in stock 8.4.
