IPv6 support?
January 16, 2014 07:12PM
(I'm French, sorry for bad english, i hate translators than i do my better myself ^^)

Hi everybody.

I ask you if it's possible to block IPv6. Sometimes, i have connexions with something wich have IPv6 (noticed by peerblock) but it's impossible to block them (right click and block) it's don't work at all (it takes only first number).
I've only tested on v1.1beta (not v1.2, i think it's the same) but if it's possible to block all IPv6 (add option) it will be great.

Or tell me how to block all IPv6 connexions, i've allways unchecked IPv6 in my Ethernet card property, but if peerblock show me allowed IPv6 connections (i've allways allow http) then my computer can connect to them and i don't want (for now).

Thanks a lot for that great software, i love it and i promise to send at least one other donate (more than today) if i have what i'm waiting for winking smiley

Indeed, PeerBlock 1.2 does not block IPv6 connections. It's a known issue and the developers will try and add it in some future version.

So.... ...any progress?

(The ability to either selective block ipv6 peers -- of toggle OFF the whole damned spectrum -- has been my #1 "want" out of this too for several years.)

No progress yet. It'll probably be implemented in/after 2.0.

The trouble is the vast majority of IPv6 addresses

IPv4 uses a 32-bit address and provides approximately 4.3 billion addresses (32bit)
IPv6 uses a 128-bit address, allowing 2^128 or approximately 4.3 Undecillion (128bit)
(This is the number of ipv6 address locations possible it includes all from start to finish.
340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456)
That number again is: 340 undecillion, 282 decillion, 366 nonillion, 920 octillion, 938 septillion, 463 sextillion, 463 quintillion, 374 quadrillion, 607 trillion, 431 billion, 768 million, 211 thousand 456

It's possible to implement, yes, but it will take some time.

IPv6 addressing can be disabled in the OS.
Search this forum for instructions.

peerblock detects teredo connections ipv4 to ipv6 translations.
If there is an equivalent ipv4 address on teredo that is also in the block list then it will be blocked otherwise it will not be. The most common ipv6 address is the end users router ip in ipv6 and that is not dangerous at all. However like I said just untick the box all ipv6 that is Not held in the teredo addressing which has a direct ipv4 counter part will be blocked. So Just untick the box.

Here is some proof. Just ping 0:0:0:0:0:ffff:adc0:518d if its blocked then you know that teredo is working and ipv6 addresses for all the ipv4 addresses that are on your ipv4 block lists are being filtered by peerblock.
