Description Eric Lajoie 2018-04-08 10:23:29 UTC
Description of problem:
When I use "nmcli connection modify enp1s0 ipv6.method ignore" I expect all IPv6 addressing to be disabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nmcli tool, version 1.10.6-1.fc28

How reproducible:
Always even after reloads

Steps to Reproduce:
1.nmcli connection modify enp1s0 ipv6.method ignore
2.nmcli con sh enp1s0 | grep IP6
3.ip ad

Actual results:
Link Local FE80 address assigned

Expected results:
No IPv6 addressing (in my case on IPv4)

Additional info:

There is no ipv6.method disabled. That is a missing feature. "ignore" is not the same as "disabled".

Comment 2 Eric Lajoie 2018-04-08 18:54:09 UTC
OK, I thought ipv4.method disabled was the same as ipv6.method ignore since we have an ipv4.method of link-local as well.
