xpra v0.0.6 is very very old and is not found here, please upgrade to the version found on this website instead.

As for IPv6, I haven't tested it yet, it should work (not sure about your syntax though!), and if not, fixing it should be simple (patches welcome!)

Resolution: fixed
Status: acceptedclosed

Fixed IPv6 support in r776, use the following syntax:

xpra attach ssh/::ffff:192.168.1.100/10

for ssh (with a display number), or for tcp (with a port number):

xpra attach tcp/::ffff:192.168.1.100/10000

Although the code is meant to support ":" as a separator, I would advise against it as it makes the connection string very hard to read (also untested - for that same reason).
