Hello Eugen. Interesting idea to run Tahoe-LAFS over cjdns!
Unfortunately, Tahoe-LAFS doesn't work with IPv6 yet.

Here's the main ticket tracking this within Tahoe-LAFS: #867. It is
currently blocked on getting Foolscap working over IPv6: Foolscap
ticket #155. Foolscap ticket #155 is marked as being blocked on
getting Twisted working over IPv6: Twisted ticket #3014, but I think
that might not actually be true anymore. Since that Foolscap ticket
#155 was created, the Twisted folks have made a great deal of progress
on adding IPv6 support. See the Twisted wiki page about IPv6:


It could be that with the implementation of Twisted is sufficient.
However, we would still need someone to do a little bit of work to
make Foolscap expose that functionality -- see the details in the
Foolscap #155 ticket.
