Disabling IPv6 in Ubuntu 13.10 and Ubuntu 12.04

Here are a few ways to permanently disable IPv6 on Ubuntu that I’ve used over the years.

Disable IPv6 permanently: (will preserve on restart)

# add these lines to /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1

# then run the following to load the current sysctl.conf settings:
sysctl -p

# or simply reboot to see the changes. 98 more words
