#StackBounty: #ip #ipv6 Getting IPv4/IPv6 dual stack servers to bind to 0.0.0.0 instead of :: on machines where ipv6 is disabled?

Bounty: 50

I have a Linux (Ubuntu Groovy) server that is booted with kernel option ipv6.disable=1 so IPv6 is not available.

I also have some braindead dual stack software that I cannot change that wants to bind to ::, which of course fails. Can I somehow configure the OS to make this server bind to 0.0.0.0 and use IPv4 instead?
