Does this enable ipv6 or disable it? I was told that it was a good idea to stick to ipv4 and not use ipv6 due to the additional back door that ipv6 creates. With that said I dont have a clue what it all means or the true implications.

I suppose it would enable it. I had not heard of the backdoor you mentioned, but just in case I went ahead and changed the ipv6 to ipv4, rebooted, and it still works fine. SO go ahead with that.

THanks again!
