How can i disable IPV6 for a IGEL Linux Operating System?

Open the IGEL Setup and browse to System->Firmware Customization->Custom Commands->Network Commands and enter here in Custom Command Network Final the following line:


ifconfig eth0 inet6 del ´ifconfig | grep "Scope:Link" | sed -e "s/^.*addr: //" -e "s/ .*//"´ or

ifconfig eth0 inet6 del ´ifconfig | grep "Scope:Link" | sed -e 's/^.*addr: //;s/ .*//'´


Try which one will work for you...


Please keep it like it is and make sure that any character is exactly the same otherwise it will not work!


After a reboot IPV6 is disabled.
