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.
