Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1009776
Disabling ipv6 has no effect
Last modified: 2014-04-15 09:28:10 EDT
Description of problem:
Chosing "Ignore" as the method under "IPv6 Settings" for some NetworkManager connection apparently has no effect at all. The interface still acquires both a link local and a global IPv6 address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
set "Method" to "Ignore" under "IPv6 Settings" while editing some NetworkManager connection.
ifconfig shows two inet6 addrs, one link-local, one global.
ifconfig doesn't show any ipv6 enabled for the device in question.
This was observed with wrt610n linksys router broken ipv6 (aka the "Vista Premium" setting, or security bug, whatever you like to call it).
