hi

There are many ways to disable ipv6 on Lenny.
How have you done on your system?

I haven't done it one my system.

Thx, I've done and it seems to work.
How I already said, there are many ways to disable ipv6, for example:

1.) set ipv6 to blacklist
Code:

echo blacklist ipv6 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local
2.) edit /etc/modprobe.d/aliases
from:
Code:

alias net-pf-10 ipv6
to
Code:

alias net-pf-10 off
3.) change /etc/sysctl.conf
Code:

net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=1
4.) add
Code:

ipv6.disable=1
as a kernel parameter in /boot/grub/menu.lst

greetings

There are different ways to disable IPV6 because the kernel is changing.
The "old" ways are [1],[2],[3]
The "new" way (when IPV6 is compiled into the kernel) is [4]

Which one you should use depends on how your kernel has been configured, and what your distro version-number is.
