nsIServerSocketListener

This interface is notified whenever a server socket accepts a new connection. The transport is in the connected state, and read/write streams can be opened using the normal nsITransport API. The address of the client can be found by calling the nsISocketTransport.GetAddress() method or by inspecting nsISocketTransport.GetHost(), which returns a string representation of the client's IP address, which may be either an IPv4 or an IPv6 address.
