Comment Re:"IPv6 Leakage"??? Give me a break. (Score 2) 65 65

For example in the Linux iptables packet filter, you can disable the IPv6 protocol completely with a single command:
iptables -I INPUT -p 41 -j DROP

No, that will drop just one of many ways of tunnelling IPv6 over IPv4. To drop or manipulate IPv6 packets, you need to use ip6tables instead.

And you really shouldn't be using DROP here, as it will delay every connection until timeout expires. You want REJECT instead.
