A Swiss VM hosting provider has a technical blog post about how to kill IPv4 completely on FreeBSD. That is to say, turning it completely off, not just preferring IPv6. They then solicit concrete solutions describing, along with a proof of concept, how to turn IPv4 completely off in other operating systems and allowing them to communicate with IPv6 only.

    I feel like I don't know enough about any of this to really have opinion, but I do know how to secure an IPv4 network, (within reason) and subnet it if needed, and I can wrap my head around vlans and routing and whatnot.

    IPv6 makes my head hurt. I might be missing something I suppose.

        I like to be in front of it. But still I kill ipv6 on all my systems. Useless UUID like garbage that forces using DNS.
