The hosts file on all my freebsd systems looks like this:

I just tried removing the first entry. After doing so I still cannot connect to the relevant port on However, if I then stopped and restarted the ferret server I was then able to connect to the relevant port on So it seems that if that ::1 entry is present in /etc/hosts the ferret server will somehow bind to that instead of But before I permanently remove that ::1 entry I'll have to see if I can learn more about it to ensure that removing it doesn't cause any unwanted side effects.

The ferret server seems to be using IPv6 when available, while monit only supports Ipv4. You could try to change the order in /etc/hosts so            localhost

comes before

::1                      localhost

Its a long shoot, if this does not help and you want to use IPv6 for the loopback device, try to configure the ferret server to use both IP- versions. Though removing ::1 and using Ipv4 for only should not have side effects as servers speaking IPv6 also supports IPv4 (usually).
