Accepted submission by canopic jug at 2019-01-18 09:08:44

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 soutions describing, along with a proof of concept, how turn IPv4 completely off in other operating systems and allowing them to communicate with IPv6 only.
