XFCE (in Manjaro) NetworkManager cannot disable IPv6

Hi guys, I'm trying to set up a VPN. I'm encountering an issue, when I tweak the settings of the VPN, under Edit Connections (network manager) I choose the option to disable IPv6 (or ignore it) and neither option works. IPv6 continues to be projected. The VPN claims it's the problem of my software, because they don't support IPv6 yet, and I can't disable it.

Any ideas why I cannot disable IPv6?

Best bet is to blacklist its from ever loading. Reboot your computer and get into GRUB command-line. Add these two parameters:

ipv6.disable=1 module_blacklist=ip6_tables

and proceed with the boot-up. If it works and fixes your problem, add them to your GRUB config file to set it permanently and then run:

sudo update-grub

Thank you so much KBar!

Reference for other users reading this:

I made the changes suggested following these guides:



to make the changes to GRUB, using grub-mkconfig

The purpose of all this was disabling IPv6 since my VPN doesn't support it, and I was still projecting the address since only IPv4 was being changed.

All the best!!
