A while ago i stumbled over "ipv6".I am fairly familiar with ipv4, iptables etc.
Therefore I took a short look at it.
I didn't like/understood the consequences.
( the included mac address, nat doesn't shield you anymore etc.)
The hardware, iirc a d-link router was not able to handle ipv6,..ah..good..case closed.
Now the AP, which isn't under my control, has changed. A quick look into
porteus dhcpcd: wlan0: Router Advertisement from xxxx::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxx
ifconfig wlan0 showed a assigned ipv6 address.
Using Network-Manager > connections I had choosen ipv6 = ignore. doesn't help.

Well, I'm not finished with the topic.
Until now I disable ipv6 (temporary) with
Code: Select all
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6
Change about:config settings
Change network.dns.disableIPv6 to true
@ everyone, what do you think/ do / recommend.. comments / concerns etc. are welcome.
