you can solve it simply setting this kernel parameter will solve the problem


sysctl net.ipv6.bindv6only=0

    As java debugging goes over sockets to, this is what you see, when you try to debug with eclipse. I put it here, so search engines can better find this page.

    ERROR: transport error 202: connect failed: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt
    ERROR: JDWP Transport dt_socket failed to initialize, TRANSPORT_INIT(510)
    JDWP exit error AGENT_ERROR_TRANSPORT_INIT(197): No transports initialized [../../../src/share/back/debugInit.c:690]
