I don't think that Mono would present an IPv4 address as an IPv6
address unless your host OS was doing this itself.  In order to
diagnose this we'll need to know how you are obtaining the IPAddress

Not if the object represents an IPv6 address.  You can check the
IPAddress.AddressFamily property to see which version of address it
