And what is the solution? I do not understand exactly what to do with httpv6.patc file. Someone please describe me. It is very important to me.

copy httpv6.patch to the folder that is in (in my case that was /WebIOPi-0.6.0/python/webiopi/protocols/), then run patch < httpv6.patch

To undo the patch run patch -R < httpv6.patch

The patch is only for the web interface

Thanks for the fast answer, but unfortunately does not go. :( My FTP server works great with ipv6 but webiopi not. What more can I do? The correct format in the browser "http://[23ed:343rr:.:.:.]" ? One more thing: my webiopi operational port 80 not 8000. But I think it's all the same...

Need to take a quick look on it, remembering there is a reason I did not allowed IPv6, but don't remember why.
