blakclist ipv6 or add ip6tables support

As title says.
Leaving ipv6 connections open is not a good idea.

I found that ipv6 connections are possible, because of ipv6 module that is running. ip6tables tables are missing, so it is impossible to set up a "firewall/rulles".

Code: Select all

ip6tables -P INPUT DROP
ip6tables v1.4.20: can't initialize ip6tables table `filter': Table does not exist 
So the solution is to blacklist ipv6 module or add ip6tables support.
