How to disable ipv6 in Lenny to avoid 18.104.22.168 error in name resolution for AAAA type queries
Thank you for response. But it did not help. I commented out all the
ip6 lines in /etc/hosts and then even rebooted the box.
Now see a sample output for aptitude update:-
# aptitude update
0% [Connecting to ftp.us.debian.org (22.214.171.124)] [Connecting to security.debian.or
I observed it with wireshark and the DNS queries and responses are like this:-
DNS Standard query AAAA ftp.us.debian.org
DNS Standard query response [Malformed packet]
DNS Standrd query A ftp.us.debian.org
DNS Standard query response A 126.96.36.199
ipv6 doesn't seem to have been disabled because the DNS AAAA type
queries are still going out. Please help me to disable ipv6
