Turning off IPv6 [SOLVED] (was: Re: Need help with a DNS problem)

IPV6 is only supposed to load if /etc/sysconfig/network contains the

NETWORKING_IPV6=yes

If you don't want IPV6, delete that line or set it to

NETWORKING_IPV6=no

BTW, a quick scan of /etc/rc.d/init.d/network would have revealed this.

Hey, thanks Rick (and Sean)! It did not occur to me to scan the init.d shell script for hints... I did look through every file in /etc/sysconfig and did not find anything though, and went through other docs and Google but didn't find anything obvious. However, with your comment I was able to find some files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts that mention this string.


Apparently no package owns /etc/sysconfig/network (see "rpm -qf /etc/sysconfig/network"), but I do see that the initscripts package refers to the variables found therein. I've gone ahead and filed an RFE for initscripts on FC2 to request that this text be added to the default contents of /etc/sysconfig/network to make it easier for others to find:

Thanks!
