Prevent IPv6 leak with some VPN providers

11 August, 2016 | Linux

In order to prevent IPv6 with some VPN providers, you have to disable this functionality for a specific interface.

 

Check here if you have some leakage (after connected to a VPN).

 

TEMPORARY FIX:

sudo sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.tun0.disable_ipv6=1

 

PERMANENT FIX:

vim /etc/sysctl.conf
net.ipv6.conf.tun0.disable_ipv6 = 1
