Disable ipv6 debian wheezy..

Is the a proper way to disable ipv6 on wheezy ?

till 16th July 2013 18:48

The following command works for squueze and I expect that it works for wheezy as well:


echo 'net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1' > /etc/sysctl.d/disableipv6.conf
and then reboot the server.

Did that..

Upon reboot, i can still see some service listening on v6

Please check the file /etc/sysctl.d/disableipv6.conf, if the line in that file is enclosed in ', then remove ' at the beginning and the end of the line and reboot.

There is no ' ...

This workaround works on squeeze, but not on wheezy
