I know this is an old thread but I created an account and waited a couple of days to get it activated.

Just want to say, thanks for the fix! I ran into this issue with expressvpn and adding the preference for ipv4 on jdownloader fixed it.

I spent hours troubleshooting this. Would be great if the detection for this could be a bit better. Permission denied implies some permission issues, or firewall related, etc. Surely you can do a basic networking check and provide a better error message or better yet fix the code so that fallback to v4 only is smooth which is the right thing to do.

Anyways, just feedback, thanks for a great product.
