Access Webmin with IPv6 address

I tried a IPv6 only VPS. It has no IP v4 address.

It is always errorĀ  connection when I tried to use an IP v6 to connect it.

Here is some new knowledge for me.

Use a pair [] around the IPv6 address when using it in the Browser address .

The correct format is: https://[2001:19f0:8001:ae7:5400:1ff:fe93:a764]:10000

 

To enabled IPv6 support.

1) /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf

add a line

IPv6 =1

2) Install Socket6 perl module

apt install libsocket6-perl

Then restart webmin service.

Now I can enter the webmin which is IPv6 only webmin.

So I use the way suggested on above link.
