I should clarify that further... the database library does not support
the use IPv6 addresses in a similar manner to what you are doing with
the IPv4 address above.
However, looking back through the archives, Fraser mentioned that it
should work if you use a hostname instead (e.g. database.mydomain.com).
If that is correct (I have not tested it), you should be able to just
set up a DNS entry that resolves to the IP address you are using, and
change tDatabaseAddress accordingly.
