Disable IPv6 on WEC2013? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We want to disable IPv6 in our WEC2013 BSP as our customer does not use it in his applications. 

    We checked IPv6 registry settings and catalog items but did not find a setting that disables IPv6.

    Does anybody know whether IPv6 can be disabled in WEC2013?

    Thanks in advance,

    Marcel

  • Hello Marcel,

    you can use following registry setting to disable IPV6:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\Tcpip6\Parms]  "EnableDHCPv6"=dword:0
    "DisabledComponents"=dwordFF ; IPv6 disablen

  • Hi Marcel,

    Have you looked at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\] for ipv6 related items?  Potentially you can set the driver not to load or investigate building a custom image without ipv6 support included?

  • Thank you Holger.

    We have tested the settings and see no IPv6 traffic anymore.
