Checking refusal of a network connection

My configuration file ?/etc/hosts? provides the following information
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

I got other expectations for the corresponding software behaviour.

I am curious to clarify the circumstances further if such a combination
can also work finally.
If my software test client would pass the IPv6 address family for a connection,
both processes would use the same network protocol version.
