    RE: Disable IPV6 in Debian Lenny?
    For the archive: edit: [color=#A7A7A7]/etc/modprobe.d/aliases[/color] By default you will have a line like this: [color=#A7A7A7]alias net-pf-10 ipv6[/color] Replace that line with: [color=#A7A7A7]alias net-pf-10 off[/color] [color=#A7A7A7]alias ipv6 off[/color] (The second line may/may not be required with newer (2.26.+) kernels, but it won’t hurt anything) Also, while we’re at it, on your desktop machines, help out Firefox by disabling IPv6 there too. It’s simple, in the location bar enter: [color=#A7A7A7]about:config[/color] Then search for: [color=#A7A7A7]network.dns.disableIPv6[/color] and toggle its value to ‘[color=#A7A7A7]true[/color]'

    For the archive:
    edit:

    /etc/modprobe.d/aliases

    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’t hurt anything)

    Also, while we’re at it, on your desktop machines, help out Firefox by disabling IPv6 there too. It’s simple, in the location bar enter:

    about:config

    Then search for:

    network.dns.disableIPv6

    and toggle its value to ‘true'
