Why IPv4 link local addresses are not disabled by DISABLE_LINK_LOCAL_ADDRESSES setting?


#1

Hi,

I’ve noticed there is a “org.ice4j.ice.harvest.DISABLE_LINK_LOCAL_ADDRESSES” property in ice4j, but it only affect IPv6 address. There is link local addresses range for IPv4 which is 169.254.0.0/16.
The property was introduced 4 years ago, but can’t figure out, why only for IPv6.
Would anyone mind if I submit PR which also filters IPv4 link local addresses? Or there is a big reason why it is done the way it’s done?

Thanks,
Yury.
