socket on cygwin python

I've installed cygwin with latest python 2.5.1, but it seems that the
socket lib file do NOT support IPv6(cygwin\lib\python2.5\lib-dynload
\_socket.dll), what can I do if I want to use IPv6?
Thanks

Use the Python binaries from python.org. If that is not acceptable,
recompile Python for Cygwin to use WinSock2.

Thanks Martin.

But no VC/C++ tool installed on my PC, and I think recompile this file
it seems necessary. :(
So I tried to find a binary files on Python.org, but I can't find it.
Could you tell me the binary location for the file? Thank you.

BestRegards

Go to http://www.python.org/
Click on DOWNLOAD on the left
Choose the version/release/flavor you want.

I don't think Cygwin supports IPv6. Use the native Windows Python.

I don't think Cygwin supports IPv6.
That was my impression too and seems to be substantiated by the
following:

Got it! Thank you very much, Jason, both Michael.
I've chosen to be a Linuxer not only to solve this. :)
