Servlet returning remote address in IPv6 not IPv4

I can't find any help with these, also in history of this site. When I run my server Tomcat 6 on Windows 7/2008 my java code retrieves IPs in version 6, not 4. Is there any setting to disable this? I have turned off IPv6 protocol in network connections, I have disabled it in registry but still getRemoteAddr() returns IP6. Does anyone have similar problem?

It seems that it's not related to your java server code
