disable IPv6 for a client

Post by karl047 » Tue Jun 15, 2021 9:46 am

Hi Forum,

with last version of OpenVPN connect for iPhone (or for another Platforms), I could disable the IPv6 for just one client through ovpn file with these commands:

push-filter ignore ipv6-route
push-filter ignore ifconfig-ipv6

but now I see that the both commands are under „UNUSED OPTIONS“ in the log file!

is there an another option to disable IPv6 for a client?

Thanks

Configure your server to not push IPv6 to the client.

but another clients should have access to IPv6 network… it worked earlier, & now this option is not more supported!… any another solution?

The server can push different things to different clients.

Thank you for your trick, I solved it :-)

in client specific overrides:

push-remove ifconfig-ipv6;push-remove route-ipv6

it will work (because it is configured on the server) with any platform!…

in client specific overrides, add these lines to disable ipv6:

push-remove ifconfig-ipv6;push-remove route-ipv6
