I have tried various ways of disabling IPv6 on my primary workstation running Debian Lenny but it still sticks. Any ideas?
For the archive:
By default you will have a line like this:
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
Replace that line with:
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
(The second line may/may not be required with newer (2.26.+) kernels, but it won‚Äôt hurt anything)
Also, while we‚Äôre at it, on your desktop machines, help out Firefox by disabling IPv6 there too. It‚Äôs simple, in the location bar enter:
Then search for:
and toggle its value to ‚Äòtrue'
