It is enabled by default and cannot even be disabled.

In case of you using IPv6 addresses to connect, you must write them into [] brackets because of the colons. Example: [295f:e05b:3dc5:bed2:2350:9648:ef5f:c304]

For hostnames, it should work automatically if IPv6 is preferred, IPv6 DNS is working correctly and the target host has a valid AAAA record.

Port 14147 is FileZilla Server's administration port. You can only connect to that port using FileZilla Server's administration interface.

In case you are using a firewall, is it IPv6 capable?
