Well, that certainly confirms that IPv6 is disabled on your machine (from the 
lack of lines such as "inet6 addr:").

You say "I haven't disabled the IPv6 protocol, no references in 
/etc/default/grub neither in systcl asociated file."

Something (or someone) has certainly disabled IPv6 on this machine, though.

What are the outputs from:

	grep -v ^# /etc/default/networking

	cat /etc/network/interfaces

hidden by their superficial design flaws."
