Forum Thread: IPv6 Leakage

Hello. I am using a VPN, but my IPv6 is leaking and I have no idea on how to disable IPv6. I am running on Kali Sana or Kali Linux v2.0.

it really big change that when you go to network settings that you'll find somewhere option to disable IPv6.Some as windows has or linux

Find the interface that runs IPv6 using ifconfig in Terminal. Then type the following, replacing @ with the interface name:

sudo sh -c 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/@/disable_ipv6'

Now make sure that IPv6 is disabled by checking the interface under ifconfig again.

Thank you. It worked perfectly.

um...what does he mean by "IPv6 is leaking"?
