Network settings: quick reference
Currently there is no support for IP version 6 within the network or on any CIS supported host. In addition badly configured systems with IPv6 can have a negative impact on the network, sometimes tantamount to a denial-of-service attack. Consequently we require attached devices to the network to ensure IPv6 is disabled within their network settings.
On a Windows PC, there is a quick way to ensure this by making the following registry setting
followed by a re-boot of the system.
Alternately, perform the following commands to disable 6to4, Teredo and ISATAP:
netsh int ipv6 6to4 set state disabled
netsh int ipv6 set teredo disable
netsh int ipv6 isatap set state disabled
- Set your computer to use DHCP (Obtain IP address automatically)
- Supplied during registration
