(usagi-users 04050) Question on disabling IPv6 on specific interfaces.



Hello!

I'd like to be able to disable the auto-creation of IPv6 addresses on certain interfaces.

I'm currently using Fedora Core 8, kernel 2.6.24

I tried adding:

IPV6INIT=no
IPV6_AUTOCONF=no

to my ifcfg-eth1 file.

But, even if I manually set autoconf to 0 with this command:
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth1/autoconf

It is always set to 1 after I do an 'ifdown eth1; ifup eth1'
and I have an IPv6 address magically created on eth1.

Any ideas how to get this to stick?

Thanks,
Ben
