MAMP and IPv6

We are getting lots of questions regarding MAMP / MAMP PRO and IPv6.
Does it work? Yes it does!

Mac OS X supports IPv6 since 10.2, based on KAME. Since 10.3 it is possible to configure IPv6 using the GUI.

Some examples:

MAMP start page with Internet Protocol Version 4
(Apache Port 8888)
http://127.0.0.1:8888/MAMP/index.php?language=English

MAMP start page with Internet Protocol Version 6
(Apache Port 8888 / complete spelling)
http://[0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1]:8888/MAMP/?language=English

MAMP start page with Internet Protocol Version 6
(Apache Port 8888 / short spelling)
http://[::1]:8888/MAMP/?language=English

MAMP start page with Internet Protocol Version 4
(Apache Port 80)
http://127.0.0.1/MAMP/index.php?language=English

MAMP start page with Internet Protocol Version 6
(Apache Port 80 / complete spelling)
http://[0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1]/MAMP/?language=English

MAMP start page with Internet Protocol Version 6
(Apache Port 80 / short spelling)
http://[::1]/MAMP/?language=English

It is important to write the IP Number within squared brackets in order to separate it from the port number.
