Just a quick question - can I disable IPv6 for my whole machine?
I mean apart from changing some kernel compilation flags.
I have two software apps which are meant to be interacting with each other and
with servers on the net, but they aren't and they aren't giving me much to go
on, and their respective support teams are blaming each other for the resulting
This is only temporary (I hope) - it is a gateway machine I'm talking about -
the apps are running on Windows on the LAN.
I found this on the net:
You can disable IPv6 system-wide by editing your module configuration file. This
is usually one of /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modprobe.d/aliases, depending on
your distro. Remove any references to IPv6 and add these two lines.
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
Is that going to do the job fine for lenny?
