Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.19-5
Severity: normal

FWIW, I just tried with iceweasel (3.0.9-1), w3m (0.5.2-2+b1) and
links (2.2-1+b1); all failed with 404 (not found), using the default

When deactivating the "$HTTP["remoteip"] =~ "" check, all
browsers except links work. Guessing by the following comment in the
config file:

   ## Note: =~ "" works with ipv6 enabled, whereas ==
      "" doesn't

I think this might indeed have something to do with IPv4/IPv6:

- My lighttpd listens on a tcp6 socket

- links uses IPv4 to connect, and always gets a 404 (but it is able to

- w3m uses IPv6 to connect, and gets the page when the remoteip check
  is disabled, and continues to work if the check is reenabled, but
  changed to == "::1".

I'd conclude from that data that the remoteip check in the config file
is still wrong when lighttpd uses an IPv6 socket (as seems to happen
on a default install); I have no clue as to why links always gets 404,
