Well, leaving aside inability to connect via IPv6, let's look at the
IPv4 attempt: this error actually means that the destination socket did
not respond within a certain timeout to the connection request.
So may it be that you're simply having firewall issues?
To exclude the possibility of git-daemon listening on its socket but not
accepting connections on it, try stopping Git and then running netcat
in listening mode on the same socket:
$ nc -l -p 9418
Then try telnetting to that port from your client machine:
$ telnet cei.inf.ufpr.br 9418
If that works, you can be quite sure you've pinpointed a bug in
the git-daemon-run package, otherwise fix the network setup.
