Enable utils.OwnIpAddress to work with IPv6 addresses

Currently a TcpPing using the target address as source is used to
determine wheter or not an IP address belongs to a node. This does not
work for IPv6 anymore (I'm not sure why) as binding to IPv6 localhost as
source for the TCP connection in TcpPing still results in a successful
connection, even in case the target address is non-local.
