An IPv6 link local address does not represent a communication endpoint itself.
It is rather relative to a link.
Therfore we have to set the scope_id field of the sockaddr_in6 struct to the index of the network interface we want to use.

There is no possibility to set the sin6_scope_id in the SocketAddress (IPv6SocketAddressImpl) classes.
